Fungi occurring on Proteaceae in Australia: Selected foliicolous species
This paper represents the first of a series dealing with fungi associated with Proteaceae cultivated in Australia. Several leaf pathogens are newly recorded, including Botryosphaeria proteae, Coleroa senniana, Kabatiella proteae, Mycosphaerella jonkershoekensis and Mycosphaerella lateralis from Protea spp. The host range of Phyllosticta telopea is expanded to also include Grevillea, Leucadendron and Leucospermum, and a Pestalotiopsis leaf spot known previously from Africa only is also reported on Protea and Telopea. Cercostigmina protearum var. hakeae, known from Hakea in South Africa, is also newly reported on Grevillea in Australia. New species described include Leptosphaerla telopeae on Telopea, Mycosphaerella buckinghamiae on Buckinghamia and Ramularia proteae on Protea.
