Type speciesMicronectria guaranitica Speg.

NotesMicronectria guaranitica forms a sexual morph on leaves of Luehea divaricata while no asexual morph is known (Spegazzini 1885). This species has been reported from India, Sri Lanka, and Ethiopia, (Petch 1920, Ciccarone 1951, Ananthanarayanan 1964). Micronectria appears as scattered, often aggregated, brownish-black, raised spots, immersed, flask-shaped ascomata, oblong-clavate asci without an apical ring and hyaline, 4–5-septate, filiform ascospores, pointed at both ends (Spegazzini 1885, Ananthanarayanan 1964).
