In an examination of symptomatic Eucalyptus leaves from Chile, several foliicolous fungi were found to be present. These include pathogens such as Aulographina eucalypti, Ceuthospora innumera, Fairmaniella leprosa, Harknessiaglobosa and Thyriopsis sphaerospora. In addition, two distinct species of Mycosphaerella, M. swartii, M. cryptica and their respective anamorphs Sonderhenia eucalypticola and Colletogloeum nubilosum were collected. Although several of these fungi are regarded as important foliar pathogens of Eucalyptus spp. elsewhere in the world, further surveys are required to determine their relative importance in Chile.
