NotesPseudobambusicola, so far only described in its asexual morph, is characterised by pycnidial conidiomata which produce macro- and micro-conidia (Rupcic et al. 2018). Species of Pseudobambusicola shares close morphological resemblance with Bambusicola and Neobambusicola species. However, while the taxon of Pseudobambusicola comprises hyaline conidia and phialidic conidiogenesis, while species of Bambusicola are reported to have pale brown to brown conidia and annellidic conidiogenous cells (Dai et al. 2012, 2017). Similarly, Pseudobambusicola differs from Neobambusicola in possessing dark brown and smooth to slightly verruculose hyphae surrounding the conidiomata. The latter, in their maturity, usually develop a cylindrical neck. Pseudobambusicola species also produces chlamydospores in culture contrary to species of Neobambusicola (Rupcic et al. 2018).
