Pleurophomopsis sp.

Pleurophomopsis sp.


Saprobic on dead aerial spines of Rosa canina. Sexual morph: undetermined. Asexual morph: Conidiomata 200250 µm diam., 100–150 µm high, dark brown to black, pycnidial, scattered to gregarious, initially immersed, later becoming erumpent and exposed, globose, unilocular, glabrous. Ostiole absent, dehiscing by an irregular rupture of the apical wall. Conidiomatal wall 30–50 µm wide, composed of thick-walled, brown to dark brown cells of textura angularis. Conidiophores reduced to conidiogenous cells. Conidiogenous cells 10–15 × 2–4 µm, hyaline, enteroblastic, phialidic, lageniform to cylindrical, occasionally integrated, determinate, with marked periclinal thickenings at apex, smooth-walled. Conidia 4–6 × 2–3 µm ( = 5 × 2.5 µm; n = 20), hyaline, ellipsoidal to rounded, aseptate, thick- and smooth-walled.
