Notes – Saccardo (1886) established the hyphomycetous genus Catenularia to accommodate the species C. simplex and C. atra. Species are lignicolous and found on dead wood and decaying leaves and herbaceous substrates (Hughes & Kendrick 1965, Subramanian & Bhat 1987, Matsushima 1971, Li et al. 2017a). Catenularia species are characterised by macronematous, mononematous, simple or flexuous conidiophores, monophialidic, collarette conidiogenous cells and aseptate phragmoconidia formed solitary or in chains (Saccardo 1886, Subramanian & Bhat 1987, Li et al. 2017a, Holubová-Jechová 1982).
