Dinemasporium nelloi W.J. Li, Camporesi & K.D. Hyde, in Liu et al., Fungal Diversity: [18] (2015)



Saprobic on dead stems of Dactylis glomerata, forming conspicuous, rounded to irregular, black, conidiomata. Sexual morph: undetermined. Asexual morph: coelomycetous. Conidiomata 250–350 µm diam., 100–200 µm high, pycnidial, superficial, erumpent, cupulate when dry, solitary, scattered or gregarious, black, with stroma cells of textura angularis at the base and a lateral excipulum of textura porrecta or textura intricata of pale to dark brown cells. Setae divergent, stiff, brown, smooth-walled, septate, tapering towards an acute apex. Conidiophores cylindrical, septate, smooth, thick-walled, hyaline, arising from basal and periclinal wall cells. Conidiogenous cells 10–15 × 1.5–3.5 µm, phialidic, cylindrical, hyaline, smooth-walled, tapering toward the apex. Conidia 10–20 × 2.5–3.5 µm (= 15 × 3 µm; n=20), blastic-phialidic, unicellular, allantoid or lenticular, guttulate, hyaline, smooth-walled, with a single unbranched setula at each end; setula 5–15 × 0.5–1.5 µm.
