Cruz, Alisson Cardoso Rodrigues da, Sheila Miranda Leão-Ferreira, Flavia Rodrigues Barbosa & Luís Fernando Pascholati Gusmão. Conidial fungi from semi-arid Caatinga biome of Brazil. New and interesting Dictyochaeta species. Mycotaxon 106: 15-27. 2008.

ABSTRACT: During preparation of an inventory of dematiaceous hyphomycetes from dead plant material in six areas of extreme biological importance of Caatinga biome, some species of Dictyochaeta were found. Dictyochaeta caatingae and D. intermedia are proposed as new species. Dictyochaeta britannica, D. microcylindrospora, D. obesispora, and D. setosa are new records to the American continent, while D. heteroderae is new to the neotropics and D. triseptata is new to Brazil. These species are described, discussed and illustrated. A key to known species collected in Brazil is provided.
