    Argwal & Singh (1972) validly published the newgeneric name Cercocladospora in accordance withthe Articles of the International Botanical Code ofNomenclature. C. adinae was designated as thetype species. Unfortunately the authors failed tosupply a Latin diagnosis for the type species, thuscontravening Article 36 of the Code, and makingthe name invalid. Details of the type specimenhave also been incorrectly given although the IMInumber is correct. The correct details are givenbelow. Kar & MandaI (1974), unaware of thespecies described by Agarwal & Singh, validly de-scribed Cercospora adinicola (Type: IMI 138320).I have examined both these specimens and con-clude that they belong to the same species. Theepithet 'adinae' however has to be replaced by'adinicola', the former being invalidly published.

    PHYLLACHORA CINNAMOMI Hansf., Sydowia 11 :671957 (1958).

    Phyllachora cinnamomi Sivanesan, Trans. Br.mycol. Soc. 64, 9 (1975).

    Sivanesan (1975 a) described Phyllachora cinna-momi which is now found to be a synonym and alater homonym of Phyllachora cinnamomi Hans-ford (1958). Therefore Hansford's earlier nametakes priority in use over the later published name(Art. 64, International Code of Botanical Nomen-clature, 1972).

    (XXIX), 178 (1933).A new name is proposed for Trematosphaeria

    fusispora Sivanesan (1975b) which is a laterhomonym of Trematosphaeriafusispora Rick (1933).

    I am grateful to Dr P. H. B. Talbot of theWaite Agricultural Research Institute, Adelaide,South Australia for the loan of Hansford's holo-type material of Phyllachora cinnamomi.
