Abdel-Aziz, Faten A. & Mohamed A. Abdel-Wahab. Lolia aquatica gen. et sp. nov. (Lindgomycetaceae, Pleosporales), a new coelomycete from freshwater habitats in Egypt. Mycotaxon 114: 33–42. 2010.

ABSTRACT: An unknown coelomycete that was collected from the River Nile and associated irrigation canals in Egypt is described. The fungus is characterized by gelatinous pearl white acervuli, a peridium that forms textura intricata, holoblastic conidia that have one basal excentric cellular appendage, and up to 3–5 sub-apical cellular attenuating appendages. Based on morphology, no described genus can accommodate this new fungus, so it is described herein as new genus and species. Phylogenetic analyses of the 28S ribosomal large subunit (LSU) rDNA sequence placed the new fungus in the family Lindgomycetaceae, Pleosporales, Dothideomycetes.

KEYWORDS: aquatic fungi, anamorphic fungi, subtropical, appendaged conidia
