Olariaga, I., M.P. Hoyo, A. Gómez-Bolea & I. Salcedo. Typification and description of Typhula buxi. Mycotaxon 100: 27–35. 2007.

ABSTRACT: A Typhula resembling T. erythropus was collected on dead leaves of Buxus sempervirens at several localities of the Northeastern Iberian Peninsula. It was identified as T. buxi, a species only once collected since Maire described it from the Iberian Peninsula. As no original collection is conserved, the sclerotial structure of T. buxi was unknown; it was not described in the protologue. Later, however, the species was assigned to the subgenus Cnazonaria, which contains species with sclerotia with an inverse epidermoid layer, but the material studied in this work has a normal epidermoid layer. Concerning its typification, amongst the elements cited in the protologue, the illustration given in the protologue is selected as lectotype. In order to interpret it correctly and include T. buxi in the subgenus Microtyphula, which contains species with normal epidermoid layer, material from the type location is proposed as epitype in this work. In addition, a detailed description and illustrations of T. buxi are given and a comparison with T. erythropus is made.
