First report of leaf blight disease of Gloriosa superba L. caused by Alternaria alternata (Fr.) Keissler in India

, : First report of leaf blight disease of Gloriosa superba L. caused by Alternaria alternata (Fr.) Keissler in India. Journal of general plant pathology 73(5): 377-378

Leaf blight disease was found on Gloriosa superba L. (Liliaceae), an endangered, herbaceous, perennial, climbing lily that produces colchicine, in West Bengal, India in 2004. Small brownish spots on leaves developed into concentric rings, which eventually darkened and coalesced to blight the entire leaf. The causal fungus was morphologically identified as Alternaria alternata (Fr.) Keissler. This is the first record of A. alternata on G. superba.
