I also contacted Paul Kirk. He said he would fix it in a month when he gets back from Thailand and China. Everyone else should contact him as well so he thinks there is a global surge in people interested in Colletotrichum agaves.

Nice!

and there aren’t any photos of this species on EOL. I expect that will now be fixed in a few days. I also sent a note to Paul Kirk so hopefully we can get it straightened out on Species Fungorum. Thanks much!

indeed…

i thought the same thing and initially proposed C. agaves…
but, changed the name.

Index Fungorum is probably wrong in this case

Accrding to http://www.researchgate.net/...

“Hughes (1958) considered C. agaves a synonym of
C. coccodes. The molecular data for C. agaves show this
species to be a distinct taxon, separate from both C. gloeosporioides
and C. coccodes (Fig 1). No teleomorph is known
for this species.”
