Leptosphaerulina trifolii (Rost) Petr. was isolated in India from pearl millet samples (either leaf spots or head molds--the report was not clear) and inoculated back onto pearl millet. Initial infection of leaves developed as small, light brown spots that later turned papery, with perithecia in the center. Ascospores have muriform septation. This disease was reported once (Gaikwad and Rane 1977) and may be an artifact of controlled inoculations.
