The current study isolated and identified Alternaria alternata isolate CVGCIPL for the first time in Iraq from natural infection of green scale insect (Coccus viridis) on citrus plants during the 2020 season. Microscopic and phylogenetic analyses of the ITS-rDNA region sequence verified the identity of Alternaria sp. isolate CVGCIPL as A. alternata isolate CVGCIPL. The newly registered sequence of A. alternata isolate CVGCIPL was submitted to the GenBank database MT415558.1 and deposited under accession number MT415558.
