Pseudolachnella setulosa

Pseudolachnella setulosa (I. Hino & Katum.) Nag Raj, Coelomycetous Anamorphs with Appendage-bearing Conidia: 732 (1993)

Heteropatella setulosa I. Hino & Katum., Bull. Faculty of Agriculture, Yamaguchi University 5: 234 (1954)

Facesoffungi number: FoF 07546


Caulicolous, on dead culms. Sexual morph: undetermined. Asexual morph: Conidiomata 500850 diam., 200400 µm high, dark brown to black, cupulate, oval to elongate or subcylindrical or rounded in outline, solitary to gregarious or confluent, superficial, subcylindrical to conical with a tip in sectional view, unilocular, thick-walled, setose. Conidiomatal setae up to 200 µm long, 47 µm wide, dark brown to amber brown in the external part, becoming brown to pale towards conidial hymenium, subulate with acute apex, unbranched, septate, thick-walled with narrow lumen. Conidiomatal wall 1050 µm wide, composed of basal stroma of textura angularis with thick-walled, brown to almost black cells in the lower layers, lacking excipulum. Conidiophores arising from innermost layer of basal wall, hyaline, subcylindrical, branched, septate, thick- and smooth-walled. Conidiogenous cells 610 × 13 µm, hyaline, enteroblastic, phialidic, lageniform, usually integrated, indeterminate, with marked periclinal thickenings in the collarette zone. Conidia 31–53 × 1.53 µm ( = 42 × 2.3 µm; n = 30), hyaline, subcylindrical, with a narrow and obtuse apex, and a truncate base bearing a distinct hilum, mostly 7-septate, occasionally 56-septate, with or without constriction at septa, guttulate, smooth-walled, bearing appendages at both ends or only at one end; apical appendage 12 µm long, single, filiform, unbranched, basal appendage 12 µm long, excentric.


Material examined: Japan, Yamaguti, Simonoseki-si, Tyohu, on dead culms of Pleioblastus simonii (Poaceae), 31 March 1954, K. Katumoto (DAOM 215570, type).
