Importance and distribution

Repetophragma comprises 39 species. Repetophragma goidanichii, R. lignicola, R. sinense and R. zambiense have been transferred to Sympodiella, Endophragmiella, Sporidesmium and Neopseudocercospora respectively. Repetophragma is known on a wide range of host such as Caesalpinia echinata (Fabaceae), Cistus sp. (Cistaceae), Cupania paniculata (Sapindaceae), Freycinetia arborea (Pandanaceae), Phillyrea angustifolia (Oleaceae), Phyllostachys sp. (Poaceae), Psidium guajava (Myrtaceae) and Zygopetalum mackaii (Orchidaceae). Repetophragma is reported from Asia (Hong Kong), Europe (Italy), North America (Caribbean (Cuba), the United States) and South America (Brazil, Venezuela).
