Identification of Races of Colletotrichum orbiculare on Muskmelon in South Carolina

A. P. Keinath

May 2015

Brief

Anthracnose caused by the fungus Colletotrichum orbiculare was observed on commercial cantaloupe grown in South Carolina for the first time in decades. Isolates from leaves were inoculated onto standard differential cultivars, and races 1, 2, and 2B were identified. This is the first report of C. orbiculare race 2B from South Carolina.
