Eight Eucalyptus species grown for ornamental foliage have been seriously affected by leaf blight and leaf spot caused by Mycosphaerella cryptica, Dichomera versiformis and Phaeophleospora eucalypti. Other fungi such as Readeriella mirabilis, Sarcostroma brevilatum, Thyrinula eucalypti, Vermisporium aff. falcatum and Harknessia victoriae were found associated with smaller spots. Most of these are new host records.
