First Report of Leaf Smut of Tomatillo Caused by Entyloma australe

S. T. Koike, D. A. Glawe, and T. Barlow

February 2010


The causal agent was identified as Entyloma australe Speg. based on host and on pathogen morphology and ITS region sequence. The size, shape, and color of teliospores and the production of fascicles of conidiophores fit the descriptions for E. australe. This appears to be the only Entyloma species occurring on Physalis. This report appears to be the first record of E. australe on P. philadelphica.
