In August 2004, G. acutata was detected on fruits from highbush blueberry for the first time in Norway. Both the conidial and the ascigerous stage developed on naturally infected blueberry fruits. Perithecia also readily formed on blueberries and strawberries inoculated with a culture from highbush blueberry, and on artificial, solid medium. To our knowledge, this is the first report worldwide of the teleomorph ofGlomerella acutata on a naturally infected host.
