Coronophora – Facesoffungi number: FoF01111

Coronophora is characterized by tuberculate ascomata with polysporous asci and tiny, allantoid, hyaline ascospores. Coronophora gregaria is illustrated in this entry. Sphaeria gregaria is synonym as Coronophora gregaria and occurs on dead wood in Europe and America (Fuckel 1870, Mugambi & Huhndorf 2010). The sequences of tef1 and rpb2 of C. gregaria (ANM1555) were [...]

Bertia – Facesoffungi number: FoF

The type species, Bertia moriformis, is characterized by tuberculate ascomata and clavate asci and brown ascospores (Mugambi & Huhndorf 2010, Maharachchikumbura et al. 2016b). We provide a multi-gene phylogenetic tree (Fig. 11), which reveals that Bertia is closely related to members of Nitschkiaceae (Nitschkia, Acanthonitschkea and Fracchiaea) with good support (Fig. 11). [...]

Unisetosphaeria – Facesoffungi number: FoF

Pinnoi et al. (2003) introduced the monotypic genus Unisetosphaeria on submerged petiole of Eleiodoxa conferta from Sirindhorn Peat Swamp Forest in Thailand. Unisetosphaeria is characterized by pyriform, ostiolate, papillate ascomata, 8-spored, clavate, unitunicate, short pedicellate asci with a refractive, J-, apical ring, and 2-seriate, hyaline, septate ascospores (Pinnoi et al. 2003). The asexual morph [...]

Trichosphaeria – Facesoffungi number: FoF

Trichosphaeria was established by Fuckel (1870) with the type species T. pilosa collected from rotten wood from Germany. Trichosphaeria species are characterized by globose to subglobose ascomata with setae, unitunicate, 4–8-spored asci with a J-, apical ring, and hyaline, aseptate, ellipsoidal ascospores. Since most Trichosphaeria species were introduced before 1940, molecular data are lacking [...]

Rizalia – Facesoffungi number: FoF

Rizalia was introduced by Sydow & Sydow (1914). Hyde et al. (2017b) accepted five species in Rizalia, viz. R. byrsonimae, R. confusa, R. fasciculata, and R. glaziovii and R. guianensis. The sixth species was described by Niranjan & Sarma (2018) from India. Rizalia is characterized by globose to pyriform, setose ascomata with long necks, [...]
