Septoria unedonis var. vellanensis - a causal agent of leaf spots on strawberry-tree.
S. unedonis var. vellanensis is reported as the causal agent of leaf\nspots on the strawberry tree (Arbutus unedo) in Calabria and Sicily,\nItaly. The fungus produced spots on both leaf blades. The var. vellanensis\nof S. unedonis was identified on the basis of long pluriseptate asexual\nspores (as much as 80 Âµ long). The disease was reproduced by inoculating\na conidial suspension of the pathogen onto the leaves of young strawberry\ntree plants. Control measures are suggested.
