Abstract
Isolates of Colletotrichum spp. occurring on maturing bark of coffee shoots were described by Gibbs (1969) who separated them into four groups: a pathogenic form (CBD) causing coffee berry disease and three saprophytic forms denoted as ccp, cca and ccm. Subsequently the taxonomic status of these forms was investigated by Hindorf (1970) who referred the CBD form to Colletotrichum coffeanum Noack., ccp to C. acutatum Simmonds and both cca and cern to C. gloeosporioides Penz. For simplicity, Gibbs' terminology is retained in this paper.
