Anthracnose of Strawberry Fruit Caused by Glomerella cingulata in Florida. C. M. Howard, Professor of Plant Pathology, University of Florida, Agricultural Research Center, Dover 33527. E. E. Albregts, Professor of Soil Science, University of Florida, Agricultural Research Center, Dover 33527. Plant Dis. 68:824-825. Accepted for publication 4 June 1984. Copyright 1984 The American Phytopathological Society. DOI: 10.1094/PD-68-824.

Glomerella cingulata was isolated from anthracnose lesions on strawberry fruits. Lesions caused by G. cingulata on fruits in the field and inoculated fruits were indistinguishable from those caused by Colletotrichum fragariae. Conidia of G. cingulata were slightly shorter but larger in diameter than those reported for C. fragariae.
