Abstract: A survey of fungal pathogens of Miconia calvescens associated with this weed was carried out in part of its native range in Brazil and other Latin American countries aimed at finding potential biocontrol agents. Coccodiella miconiae, Pseudocercospora tamonae, Glomerella cingulata (= Colletotrichum gloeosporioides f. sp. miconiae), the new species Guignardia miconiae and Korunomyces prostrata were found associated with foliar diseases of this host and are described herein. Two previously undescribed spore stages of Coccodiella miconiae were also obtained allowing a complete description of the life-cycle of this species.
