Index Fungorum number: MB839488; Facesoffungi number: FoF

Basionym: Chaetosphaeria spinosa F.A. Fernández & Huhndorf, Fungal Divers. 18: 36. 2005.

Habitat and geographical distribution: Saprobe on decaying bark and wood of Betula

sp., known only in North America in the USA (North Carolina, Texas) [3].

Note: For description, illustration and characteristics in culture, see Fernández and Huhndorf [3]. Although the ascospores were described as aseptate with numerous guttules, it is likely that the septa were obscured by the droplets as is often the case with similar ascospores in Paragaeumannomyces [20].
