Abstract

In this study, we employed multilocus phylogenetic analysis for species identification of six Colletotrichum isolates belonging to the C. boninense species complex from India. Maximum parsimony analysis of the ITS/ 5.8S RNA, partial act, cal, chs1, gapdh, his3 and tub2 gene regions identified morphologically similar species, C. cymbidiicola, C. karstii and C. phyllanthi from diverse plant samples of Indian origin. Morphological description and photographic illustrations of C. phyllanthi from freshly collected material are provided, as the ex-type culture of C. phyllanthi deposited in CBS is in non- sporulating state. This is the first report of C. cymbidiicola and C. karstii from India. We are also reporting two new hosts: Bauhinia variegata (Orchid tree) and Bougainvillea glabra (Paper flower) for C. phyllanthi, and one new host: Olea dioica (Rose sandalwood) for C. karstii.
