"Wheat anthracnose outbreaks caused by C. cereale were problematic during the 1940s in the USA, but presently do not limit production of this crop, despite the fact that the fungus still inhabits wheat plants (see Crouch and Beirn, 2009 for review). Destructive disease outbreaks caused by this fungus on Poa annua and Agrostis stolonifera in golf course greens since the late 1990s highlighted the need to determine the identity of this organism, which continued to be identified as C. graminicola even after Sutton's narrow circumsription."

Have anyone here known or read the similar case? would prefer reference and link if necessary.

It's not clear which case you mean - 1940s or golf courses? –  Alan Boyd May 18 '13 at 13:03
@AlanBoyd Both if any. –  des May 18 '13 at 13:06
The review you mention in the quotation (...which is from?...) is available here and seems to be a good source of at least some relevant references. –  Alan Boyd May 18 '13 at 14:18
@AlanBoyd Thank you!! The review I quoted is from Hyde, K.D., Cai, L. Cannon, P.F., Crouch etc.(2009) Colletotrichum — names in current use. Fungal Diversity. –  des May 18 '13 at 14:48
