Abstract

Diaporthe foeniculacea is redescribed from two collections from Foeniculum vulgare in Portugal. The connection between the anamorph and teleomorph was established in cultures. The anamorph correlated well with Phoma foeniculina, and the transfer to Phomopsis is supported. The fungus is self-fertile and readily produces perithecia in culture. Three morphologically distinct Phomopsis species were found also on F. vulgare stems and one of these corresponded to the anamorph of D. foeniculacea.
