Denchev, Cvetomir M. & Makoto Kakishima. Notes on some Japanese smut fungi. IV. Mundkurella japonica, sp. nov. Mycotaxon 102: 9-16. 2007.

ABSTRACT: A new smut fungus, Mundkurella japonica on Kalopanax pictus, is described and illustrated from Japan. Mundkurella kalopanacis, another species on Kalopanax pictus, known only from the type locality in Korea, was also revised and compared with the new species. The Japanese specimens of M. japonica, collected from Ibaraki Pref. (Honshu) and three localities in Hokkaido, possess greenish brown and mainly (52–75 %)
3–4-celled fertile spores while those of M. kalopanacis possess light yellowish brown and mainly (75 %) 1–2-celled fertile spores.
