NotesMenispora is a hyphomycete genus established by Persoon (1822) based on M. glauca. Menispora species occur on decayed wood, the inner side of bark or on decayed leaves (Hughes & Kendrick 1968, Holubová-Jechová 1973b, Réblová & Seifert 2008). Menispora is characterised by macronematous, brown conidiophores, phialides in a lateral or terminal position with a tapering, strongly recurved apex and a incospicous collarette and hyaline conidia without or with polar setulae (Réblová & Seifert 2008).
