Manglicola Kohlm. & E. Kohlm., Mycologia 63(4): 840 (1971).
MycoBank number: MB 2995;Index Fungorum number: IF 2995; Facesoffungi number: FoF 07692; 2 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), 1 species with molecular data.
Type species: Manglicola guatemalensis Kohlm. & E. Kohlm.
Notes: Huhndorf (1994) referred Manglicola to the Hypsostromataceae order incertae sedis based on its superficial, large, elongate ascomata (stalked) with a soft texture, trabeculate pseudoparaphyses, long pedicellate asci attached in a basal arrangement in the centrum and fusiform, septate ascospores. However, phylogenetic analyses indicated that Manglicola formed a clade as a family in Jahnulales (Suetrong et al. 2010, 2011; Hyde et al. 2013), while Hypsostroma saxicola and H. caimitalense (Hypsostromataceae) are placed in Pleosporales with high bootstrap support (Hyde et al. 2013). Manglicola contains two species, M. guatemalensis (type species) and M. samuelsii Huhndorf. Manglicola guatemalensis differs from M. samuelsii by its marine habitat, few asci per ascomata, 1-septate ascospores which are constricted at the septum, deliquescing appendages covering both ascospore apices, with an apical cylindrical appendage and subglobose basal appendage, while M. samuelsii is terrestrial, found on bamboo in lowland rainforest, has numerous asci per ascomata and 3-septate ascospores without a sheath or appendages (Jones et al. 2019). Further studies are required to determine if M. samuelsii is correctly placed in Manglicolaceae.
