|Abstract: The present study was undertaken from the month of September 2016 to December 2018 in Jashpur (C.G.), India to collect infected plant samples. The forest of Jashpur district of Chattisgarh, India possesses great diversity of plants and its pathogenic fungi because of most favourable climatic conditions. Although forest area of Jashpur is almost untouched for forest wealth being most interior part heavily inhabited by tribal people and wild animals; therefore drew less attention towards this branch of study. Hence, intensive and extensive explorations of pathogenic fungi causing disease in plants are necessary and urgent need of time also. The field survey of Jashpur (C.G.) has resulted in the collection of a novel undescribed fungal form i.e. Acremoniula monospermae sp. nov. causing foliar disease of Butea monosperma (Lam.) Taub. Only seven species of Acremoniula G. Arnaud ex Ciferri has been reported so far from all over world as a hyperparasites (overgrowing and parasitic on other fungal organism) or saprophytes (grow on dead and decay matter) but this novel species is reported distinctly as parasites (grow on living leaves of Butea monosperma plant (Lam.) Taub.) and thus another new addition in genus Acremoniula G. Arnaud ex Ciferri.|
