Graphiola leaf spot of date palm is also known as false smut. The fungus usually attacks the upper and lower sides of the pinnae and sometimes also infects the rachis of older leaves. Infected leaves develop numerous dark brown spots. Later, these spots produce the fruiting bodies (sori) of Graphiola phoenicis, which have yellow spores and groups of sterile filaments.
