Leaf blight symptoms on coriander (Coriandrum sativum) were observed during the 2000-02 summer seasons in Beidou and Sijhou, Taiwan. The symptoms first appeared as small spots on the lower sides of leaves and stems. The centres of the spots quickly turned brown and were surrounded by whitish yellow halos. The brown spots and halos enlarged rapidly and coalesced into irregular, yellowish or brownish dry dead areas on the leaf.
