Passalora acrocomiae sp. nov. and Exosporium acrocomiae from the palm Acrocomia aculeata in Puerto Rico
Collections determined by J. A. Stevenson as Cercospora acrocomiae [≡ Exosporium acrocomiae] from leaf spots of Acrocomia media [= A. aculeata] in Puerto Rico were reexamined. Two different fungi were identified: a previously unnoticed authentic cercosporoid taxon that we describe herein as Passalora acrocomiae and Exosporium acrocomiae, which we illustrate here for the first time and for which we designate a lectotype to substitute for the missing holotype.
