Stagonospora forlicesenensis Phukhams., Camporesi & K.D. Hyde, in Hyde et al., Fungal Diversity: [77] (2016)

Facesoffungi number: FoF02384


Saprobic on dead branches of Phragmites australis (Poaceae). Sexual morph: undetermined. Asexual morph: Conidiomata 100–170 µm diam., 140250 µm high, dark brown to black, pycnidial, usually solitary, deeply immersed with only the dark brown spot visible in the surface view, globose to subglobose, unilocular, setose, thick-walled, ostiolate. Ostiole circular, centrally located. Conidiomatal setae brown at the base, becoming paler towards apex, subulate, slightly curved, septate, unbranched, smooth-walled. Conidiomatal wall 1530 µm wide, composed of thick-walled, brown cells of textura angularis in the outer layer, becoming hyaline cells in the inner layer. Conidiophores reduced to conidiogenous cells. Conidiogenous cells 611 × 49 µm, hyaline, enteroblastic, phialidic, ampulliform, determinate, discrete, smooth-walled, arising from the inner wall layer of conidiomata. Conidia 26–34 × 78.5 µm ( = 29 × 8 µm; n = 30), hyaline, cylindrical to fusiform, rounded at apex, subtruncate at base, straight, 3-septate, smooth-walled, bearing infundibuliform to campanulate-like, mucoid, apical appendages (1.2–5 µm long, 610 µm wide).
