The Colletotrichum gloeosporioides species complex contains plant pathogens linked to Anthracnose diseases afflicting various crops. In this study, we designed a loop-mediated isothermal amplification assay (LAMP) primer set based on calmodulin gene coding region sequences from taxonomically authorized isolates of species from this complex to rapidly detect the presence of fungi associated with Anthracnose diseases. This test can be employed at any point between cultivation and sale. Moreover, we examined the specificity and detectable range of this primer set using isolates selected from species of the genus Colletotrichum. This test was able to specifically detect members of the C. gloeosporioides species complex, including C. gloeosporioides, C. aotearoa, C. fructicola, C. horii, C. kahawae, C. musae, C. siamense, C. theobromicola, and C. tropicale.
