Colletotrichum gloeosporioides(Penz.) Penz. and Sacc.
Gloeosporium olivarum

Glomerella cingulata is a plant pathogenic fungus that causes disease on many different hosts including quince and apple bitter rot and anthracnose on many fruit and vegetable species such as mango[1][2] or cultivated plants like St. John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum).[3] It also causes leaf spot on Hevea brasiliensis.[4]

Danielone is a natural phenol and a phytoalexin produced by the papaya Carica papaya to fight Colletotrichum gloeosporioides.[5]

Glomerella cingulata is the sexual stage (teleomorph) while the asexual stage (anamorph) is called Colletotrichum gloeosporioides.
