Diversity, Prevalence, and Virulence of Species Associated with Lima Bean in Brazil
Anthracnose is one of the most important diseases of lima bean in Brazil. Previously, the disease was attributed exclusively to . Therefore, this work aimed to characterize the diversity, prevalence, and virulence of spp. associated with anthracnose in lima bean in Brazil. Here, we report the species , , , and in association with anthracnose of lima bean. All species were pathogenic to lima bean. In addition, several strains were found that represent novel lineages, presented here as lineages 1 to 5. is the prevailing species and more virulent than all other species studied.
