Fusarium tupiense, the main causal agent of mango malformation in Brazil, is described through a combination of morphological, biological and molecular markers. This new species belongs to the Gibberella fujikuroi species complex (GFSC) and has an anamorph morphologically similar to Fusarium mangiferae and F. sterilihyphosum. F. tupiense can be differentiated from other species in the G. fujikuroi species complex on the basis of sexual crosses, amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markers and partial sequences of the tef1 and tub2 genes. Female fertility for field isolates of F. tupiense appears to be low. PCR with primers specific for the mating type (MAT ) alleles and sexual crosses identified this species as heterothallic with two idiomorphs. Female-fertile tester strains were developed for the identification of field strains of this species through sexual crosses.
