Bambusaria bambusae (J.N. Kapoor & H.S. Gill) Jaklitsch, D.Q. Dai, K.D. Hyde & Voglmayr, Fungal Diversity 73: 196 (2015). Index Fungorum number: IF 811907

Material examined: THAILAND, Chiang Rai, Mae Fah Luang University, on dead culms of bamboo, 1 August 2011, Dong-Qin Dai, DDQ0097 (MFLU 15–1192); Doi Pui, 1 September 2011, Dong-Qin Dai, DDQ00109 (MFLU 15– 1194).

Notes: The monotypic genus Bambusaria was introduced by Jaklitsch et al. (2015) and is typified by B. bambusae (J.N. Kapoor & H.S. Gill) Jaklitsch, D.Q. Dai, K.D. Hyde (basionym: Valsaria bambusae J.N. Kapoor & H.S. Gill). Bambusaria bambusae was originally isolated from bamboo in India by Kapoor and Gill (1961). The same species was recollected on Thyrsostachys siamensis (Bambuseae) and published in Jaklitsch et al. (2015). In the present study, this species is re-illustrated based on new collections (sexual and asexual morph specimens).
