Description

Leaf spot on pseudopanax. The hyphae are very distinctive with alternating melanised short cells and longer non-melanised segments. Small black dots have angular melanised cells and spores / conidia within.

Spores/conidia are single cells, so not Placosoma.

The hyphae are incredibly distinctive but I haven’t been able to find anything similar yet. DNA saved for eventual sequencing.

On 8 May added image showing progression of leaf symptoms.
