To obtain protoplasts of Colletotrichum acutatum JC24, conidia were inoculated onto cellophane membrane placed on PDA and incubated at $25^{\circ}C$ for 20 hrs under the dark condition. Cellophane membranes, where mycelia were incubated, were soaked into 2% lysing enzyme solution prepared with 0.02 M phosphate buffer (pH 7.0) including 1.2 M sorbitiol. After treatment in 2% enzyme solution for 2 - 3 hrs, it could be possible to harvest $2-3\;{\times}\;10^6$ protoplasts/mL. The effect of several fungicides on reversion ratio was determined by using the protoplasts obtained from C. acutatum JC24. Any protoplasts could not be reversed to mycelia on reversion PDA amended with $10\;{\mu}\;g\;mL^{-1}$ of propineb. With tebuconazole, inhibition ratio of protoplast reversion was 100 and 0.9% at 0.5 and $0.1\;{\mu}\;g\;mL^{-1}$, respectively, while inhibitory effect on mycelial growth was 85.1 and 75.7%. The inhibitory tendency of carbendazim on protoplast reversion was as same as mycelial growth. In the case of strobilurins, trifloxystrobin and kresoxim-methyl, they only could inhibit protoplast reversion of C. acutatum JC24, when salicylhydroxamic acid (SHAM) was amended into reversion PDA with strobilurins.
