The objective of this research was isolation and identification of the pathogen on leaves of Acer velutinum in Dr. Bahramnia educational and research forest (Shast-Kalateh of Gorgan). After sampling and culture of explants in PDA medium, growing of fungal pathogen was white delete and fluffy shape. Pathogenic fungi were identified after purification and isolation and characterization of spore, color, shape and disease symptoms. In PDA liquid medium, a scus of fungi was white and a clubbing shape with the fiber shape and linear ascospores was observed inside them.
