Neoolivea tectonae (Racib.) Aime & McTaggart , Fungal Syst. Evol. 7: 40 (2020)

Olivea tectonae (Racib.) Thirum., Curr. Sci. 18: 176. 1949.

= Olivea tectonae (T.S. Ramakr. & K. Ramakr.) R.L. Mulder , in Mulder and Gibson, C.M.I. Descr. Pathog. Fungi Bact. 365: 1. 1973. Chaconia tectonae T.S. Ramakr. & K. Ramakr., Indian Phytopathol. 2: 19. 1949, nom. cons. prop.

(For further synonyms see Aime & McTaggert 2020.)

Uredinia hypophyllous, subepidermal, erumpent, powdery, paraphysate, associated with orange to dark brown chlorotic spots on the upper side of the leaves. Urediniospores subglobose to broadly ellipsoidal, occasionally globose, (19–)20–24(–30) × 17–19(–21) µm (n = 90), mostly hyaline, yellow-orange, walls echinulate or covered by granular ornamentation, 1.5–2 µm thick, germ pores not seen. Paraphyses cylindrical and more or less irregularly curved, 20–42 × 8–12 µm, wall up to 4 µm thick, up to 5 µm thick at the apex, hyaline, smooth. Telia not observed.

Several attempts to isolate 28S and ITS rDNA sequences from the specimens of N. tectonae from Benin were unsuccessful.

Specimens examined: — Uredinia on Tectona grandis : BENIN. Zou: Zogbodomey, Lama forest , elev. 47 m, 7°03’ N, 2°10’ E, 11 August 2017, A GoogleMaps . Tabé, M . Piepenbring, and participants of Summer School 2017, TA404 ( UNIPAR); Borgou: Parakou, Nima , elev. 363 m, 9°21’ N, 2°38’ E, 22 November 2017, A GoogleMaps . Tabé, TA412 ( UNIPAR) .

Host and distribution in Benin: —Uredinia on Tectona grandis (Lamiacae) , Central and Southern Benin.

Host species:—Primary host species: Tectona grandis , Tectona spp. ; Lamiaceae ( Yun 2020) . Secondary host species: not known.

Distribution: —Africa [ Ivory Coast ( Koffi et al. 2018), Benin (this study)], Asia, Central America, Oceania, Southern America, Caribbean (Farr & Rossman 2020).

Comments: — Neoolivea tectonae is reported for the first time for Benin and for the second time for Africa. The morphological characteristics observed for specimens from Benin are identical with those reported for N. tectonae from other countries (e.g. Daly et al. 2006, Cabral et al. 2010).
