Notes: Gonatophragmium was described in Cejp and Deighton (1969) with G. mori as the type species, a combi- nation based on Spondylocladium mori. Gonatophragmium mori is a tropical-subtropical leaf-spotting species and is found on a wide range of hosts. Takahashi and Teramine (1986) considered Acrospermum viticola to be the sexual morph of this species, however this association was not proven by molecular data. Gonatophragmium is distinct in having pigmented, branched conidiophores formed as erect to decumbent threads with terminal and intercalary conidiogenous cells, which are regularly swollen around fertile portions with mostly numerous noticeable conidiogenous loci. The sexual morph of this genus is undetermined.
