MycoBank number: MB 554238; Index Fungorum number: IF 554238; Facesoffungi number: FoF 04089; Fig. 6

Description: see Hyde et al. (2018).

Material examined: Thailand, Chiang Mai, Mae Taeng, Pa Pae, Bahn Pa Deng, Mushroom Research Centre, 128 Moo 3, on living leaves of Magnolia odora (Magnoliaceae), 8 July 2015, Xiang-Yu Zeng (MFLU 16-0071).

GenBank number: LSU: MN629745.

Notes: Our new collection of Asterina magnoliae is identified by morphological characters (Fig. 6) and phylogenetic evidence (Fig. 5). Hyde et al. (2018) provided a full description of this species.

Fig. 5 Phylogram generated from maximum likelihood analysis (RAxML) of Asterinales based on LSU sequence data. Maximum likelihood bootstrap values equal to or greater than 70%, Bayesian posterior probabilities equal to or greater than 0.90 (MLBS/PP) are given at the nodes. Isolate numbers are noted after each species name. The tree is rooted to Venturia inaequalis (ATCC 60070) and Venturia populina (CBS 256.38). Newly sequence data generated in this study are in blue. Ex-types are indicated in bold. Hyphen (-) represents sup- port values less than 70% MLBS and 0.90 PP
