Pilidium acerinum and Ceuthospora lauri are newly reported pathogens from Eucalyptus grandis leaves in South Africa. Symptoms occurred on leaves of lower branches towards the end of winter. Although occurring together on the same lesion, both fungi were individually patlogenic, Inoculation studies showed that P. acerinum was the more virulent pathogen.
