Cruz, Alisson Cardoso Rodrigues da, Luis Fernando Pascholati Gusmão & Rafael F. Castañeda Ruiz. Conidial fungi from the semi-arid Caatinga biome of Brazil. Subramaniomyces pulcher sp. nov. and notes on Sporidesmium circinophorum. Mycotaxon 102: 25-32. 2007.

ABSTRACT:During an investigation of microfungi on dead plant material in a semi-arid region of northeast Brazil, two interesting fungi were collected that are herein described and illustrated. Subramaniomyces pulcher, distinguished by catenulate, broad fusiform to limoniform, brown to dark brown basal and intercalary conidia and acerose, hyaline apical conidia, is proposed as a new species. The Selenosporella-like synanamorph of Sporidesmium circinophorum, which arises from the apical or subapical cell of the conidial rostrum, is also reported.

KEYWORDS: anamorphic fungi, hyphomycetes, leaf litter, systematics
