Notes – Species of Anthosulcatispora are saprobic on stems of herbaceous plants (Phookamsak et al. 2019, Phukhamsakda et al. 2020). The asexual morph of Anthosulcatispora resembles that of Neobambusicola and Pseudobambusicola in terms of the solitary, unilocular pycnidia, phialidic conidiogenesis and hyaline conidia (Phukhamsakda et al. 2020). However, Neobambusicola and Pseudobambusicola comprise globose pycnidia and two types of conidia, while Anthosulcatispora consists of subglobose conidiomata, elongated cylindrical to truncate conidiogenous cells and oblong, aseptate conidia (Crous et al. 2014b, Rupcic et al. 2018, Phukhamsakda et al. 2020). Furthermore, Neobambusicola brunnea was transferred to Anthosulcatispora based on phylogenetic analyses (Phookamsak et al. 2019, Phukhamsakda et al. 2020) and following this, it is reported that the sexual morph of Anthosulcatispora comprises brown ascospores while the sexual morph of Sulcatispora consists of hyaline, broadly fusiform ascospores completely surrounded by a sheath (Tanaka et al. 2015).
