NotesLatorua was originally isolated from soil in Brazil (Crous et al. 2015a). ITS and LSU sequence data are available in GenBank for Latorua caligans. For morphology of type species see Crous et al. (2015a). Crane & Miller (2016) synonymized Latorua with Bahusandhika based on the similarity of the conidiogenous cells, conidial development and the morphological characters of the conidia without considering phylogenetic analysis.
