Forty-four species of Colletotrichum are confirmed as present in Australia based on DNA sequencing analyses. Many of these species were identified directly as a result of two workshops organised by the Subcommittee on Plant Health Diagnostics in Australia in 2015 that covered morphological and molecular approaches to identification of Colletotrichum. There are several other species of Colletotrichum reported from Australia that remain to be substantiated by DNA sequence-based methods. This body of work aims to provide a basis from which to critically examine a number of isolates of Colletotrichum deposited in Australian culture collections.
