Silvera-Simón, Carolina, Josepa Gené, Josep Cano & Josep Guarro.  Wardomycopsis litoralis, a new soil borne hyphomycete. Mycotaxon 105: 195-202. 2008.

ABSTRACT: The new hyphomycete Wardomycopsis litoralis, isolated from a soil sample in Spain, is described and illustrated. This fungus is characterized mainly by conidiogenous cells that show distinct terminal annellations and conidia with a median germ slit running longitudinally. It can be differentiated from the other species of the genus mainly by conidial morphology. Sequence analysis of the internal transcribed spacer regions and the 5.8S ribosomal RNA gene confirmed this hypothesis and revealed a close genetic relationship of W. litoralis with the genera Wardomyces and Scopulariopsis.

KEYWORDS: soil fungi, conidial fungi, molecular phylogeny
