Pseudoneottiospora coprophila (Spegazzini) Breton & Faurel apud Nag Raj

Facesofungi number: FoF 07541


Coprophilous on dung of sheep (Nag Raj 1993). Sexual morph: undetermined. Asexual morph: Conidiomata 110–230 µm wide, 100–220 µm deep, dark brown to black, pycnidial, scattered to gregarious, immersed, ovoid or globose, unilocular, glabrous, ostiolate. Ostiole circular or oval, centrally located. Conidiomatal wall 10–15, composed of thick-walled, dark brown to hyaline cells of textura angularis to textura globulosa in basal and lateral part, becoming darker at the ostiolar region. Conidiophores arising from inner wall layer of conidiomata, hyaline, cylindrical to subcylindrical, branched, septate, smooth-walled,. Conidiogenous cells 7–14 × 1–2 µm, hyaline, enteroblastic, annellidic, subcylindrical to obclavate, usually integrated, indeterminate, smooth-walled. Conidia 13.5–20 × 1.5–2 ( = 17.4 × 1.6) µm, hyaline, obclavate, with a broad apex and narrow, truncate base, straight or curved, 1-septate, uneven, smooth-walled, guttulate, bearing 2–4, filiform, tubular, flexuous, unbranched, apical appendages (adapted from Nag Raj 1993).
