A new cercosporoid fungus, Pseudocercosporella stellariicola, was collected on leaves of Stellaria aquatica (Caryophyllaceae). This fungus is described, discussed, and compared with other similar hyphomycetes occurring on Stellaria and related genera: Cercosporella echinulata, Phacellium episphaerium, Pseudocercosporella cerastii, and Ps. woronovii. The phylogenetic relationship of Ps. stellariicola and other Pseudocercosporella species within Mycosphaerellaceae is also inferred from the ITS rDNA sequence data.
