Bruno S. Vieira & Robert W. Barreto. Lewia chlamidosporiformans sp. nov. from Euphorbia heterophylla. Mycotaxon 94: 245-248. 2005.

ABSTRACT: Lewia chlamidosporiformans found associated with the weed Euphorbia heterophylla (wild poinsettia) was collected in Brazil and is newly described and illustrated. It differs from the other species in the genus by having longer ascospores that are surrounded by a mucilaginous sheath and asci that have a different shape (obovoid to obpyriform). It produces abundant chlamydospores when grown in liquid media. Its pathogenicity to wild poinsettia was demonstrated.

KEYWORDS: Pleosporaceae, Euphorbiaceae, Ascomycota
