Sun, Guangyu , Miao Zhang, Rong Zhang, Huining Ma & Mark L. Gleason. Wallemia—a genus newly recorded from China. Mycotaxon 95: 277 - 280. 2006.

ABSTRACT: Wallemia sebi (Basidiomycota) is reported from China for the first time. The fungus was found on the epicuticular wax of apple fruit sampled from an orchard in Shaanxi Province, China. Its conidiophores are unbranched or sympodial, erect, and phialidic; conidiogenous cells at the apex of conidiophores constrict and disarticulate distally into four arthrospore-like conidia; conidia are one-celled, initially short cylindrical, and finally spherical; the fungus can grow on potato dextrose agar (PDA) and malt extract agar (MEA) media without additional solutes. A description based on the Chinese material and illustrations are provided.

KEYWORDS: Wallemiomycetes, taxonomy, sooty blotch
