Pseudocercospora desmodiicola sp. nov. on Desmodium triquetrum from Campierganj forest, Gorakhpur, U.P., India

Rajiv Ranjan

During survey for the foliicolous fungi from diversified habitats of Campierganj Forest, Gorakhpur U.P. India we came across an important plant of the locality, Desmodium triquetrum DC (Leguminosae, Subfamily-Papilionaceae) is an erect or suberect undershrub, distributed throughout central and eastern Himalayas, South India and Sri Lanka. On critical study the living leaves were found to be infected with Pseudocercospora. Since it has also been customary for plant pathologists and mycologists to describe as new any Cercospora or Pseudocercospora found a host for the first time (Ellis, 1971), this undescribed taxa has been described and illustrated as Pseudocercospora desmodiicola sp. nov. Rajiv Ranjan. The review of available literatures reveals that there has been no record of this fungus from India on this host so for. Therefore, this host of the new species is a new record to Indian mycoflora from Campierganj Forest, Gorakhpur U.P. India
