The new species Plectosporium delsorboi was found as causal agent of leaf and stem lesions in the ornamental plant Curcuma alismatifolia and a few other Zingiberaceae in greenhouses in Southern Italy. It is closely related to Plectosporium alismatis based on ITS sequences but has completely straight conidia.
