Thissymptom is caused by the plant pathogen fungus Tapesia yallundae Wallwork& Spooner and the аnamorphic stage Pseudocercosporella herpotrichoides(Fron) Deighton. Symptoms observed are diffuse eyespot lesions developedon the stem base. Microscopic observations and laboratorial investigationshowed the presence of teleomorphic and anamorphic stage of this pathogen.The presence of the anamorphic stage Pseudocercisorella herpotrichouides(Fron) Deighton is confi rmed with the microscopic observation of long andtight hyaline conidia and conidiophores growing on septed, light olivaceousmycelium, while the presence of the teleomorphic stage Tapesia yallundaeWallwork & Spooner is confi rmed with the presence of apothecia containing alot of asci with eight ascospores.
