NotesFusiformispora is a monotypic genus which is characterized by obpyriform to compressed globose ascomata, papillate, central ostioles, a multi-layered peridium, trabecular pseudoparaphyses, cylindric-clavate asci with a furcated pedicel and broadly fusiform, hyaline, guttulate ascospores with a mucilaginous sheath. The type Fusiformispora clematidis, resemblances ascospore of Amniculicola. However, their habitat and the characteristics of ascomata and asci are different (Zhang et al. 2008b, Phukhamsakda et al. 2020). See Phukhamsakda et al. (2020) for further details.
