Abstract

Corymbia calophylla is an important eucalypt species endemic to the south-west of Western Australia. It is currently in decline across its native habitat for unknown reasons but perhaps due to climate change or to the presence of a recently described canker disease caused by Quambalaria coyrecup. Few fungal leaf pathogens have been described from C. calophylla. The following paper describes two new species of Teratosphaeria from C. calophylla, Teratosphaeria calophylla sp. nov and T. rubidae sp. nov. In addition, a new epitype was designated for T. australiensis.
