First report of Glomerella acutata on strawberry in Bulgaria

During spring 2001 and 2002, damage on strawberry fruits was observed in the region of Plovdiv, Bulgaria. Symptoms typical of Glomerella acutata (anamorph Colletotrichum acutatum) (EU Annex II/A2) were observed. G. acutata was identified in the laboratory based on morphology, inoculation studies and species-specific PCR amplification. This is the first report of G. acutata in Bulgaria.
