Studies on the black spot of citrus Guignardia citricarpa Kiely. The anamorph of the black spot fungus was first described by McAlpine and designated Phoma citricarpa McAlpine. If they prove successful for detection and identification of species using colonized plant material they should greatly speed diagnosis of black spot.

Clearly, living or dead vegetative tissues represent a high risk for introduction since airborne ascospores can be produced on these tissues under favourable conditions. In both countries the fungus was thought to have been found, but after further testing it was identified as the non-pathogenic strainGuignardia mangiferaerather than the pathogenic strain Guignardia citricarpa which causes Citrus Black Spot. It is unlikely that conventional breeding will produce commercially useful, tolerant cultivars in the foreseeable future.
