    ABSTRACT: Colletotrichum isolates isolated from cowpea in the Hangzhou area of China were identified as C. destructivum based on morphological characteristics, pathogenicity tests, sequence analysis of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS)1, 5.8S RNA gene and ITS2 regions of ribosomal DNA and the infection process. The ability of the C. destructivum isolates to infect Arabidopsis thaliana was investigated under laboratory conditions and showed a two-phase hemibiotrophic infection process. In addition, the sequences of the rDNA ITS region of C. destructivum isolates from cowpea were identical with 100% similarity to that of isolates of C. higginsianum originating from cruciferous plants. This article presents new evidence in support of C. higginsianum as a synonym of C. destructivum.
