Pseudocercospora zizyphe-onopleae sp. Nov. on Zizyphus oenoplia from Ramgarh Forest, Gorakhpur U.P., India

Rajiv Ranjan

During survey for the foliicolous fungi from diversified habitats of Ramgarh Forest, Gorakhpur U.P. India we came across an important plant of the locality, Ziziphus oenoplia, (Rhamnaceae) commonly known as the jackal jujube, small-fruited jujube or wild jujube, known as Makora in Hindi is a flowering plant with a broad distribution through tropical and subtropical Asia and Australasia. It is a spreading, sometimes climbing, thorny shrub growing to 1.5 m in height. The leaves are simple, alternate, ovate-lanceolate, acute and oblique. The flowers are green, in sub sessile axillary cymes. The fruit is a globose drupe, black and shiny when ripe, containing a single seed. 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 zizyphe-onopleae 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 Ramgarh Forest, Gorakhpur U.P. India
