Towyspora aestuari Wanasinghe, E.B.G. Jones & K.D. Hyde, in Li et al., Fungal Diversity 78: [35] (2016)


Saprobic on dead branches of Phragmites communis. Sexual morph: undetermined. Asexual morph: Conidiomata 250–1000 µm diam., 200300 µm high, black, eustromatic, scattered to gregarious or confluent, unilocular or mutilocular, closed when young, erumpent at maturity, subglobose, ostiolate, glabrous, thick-walled. Ostiole short, single, circular, centrally located. Conidiomatal wall 1030 µm thick, composed of thick-walled, dark brown to hyaline cells of textura angularis. Conidiophores reduced to conidiogenous cells. Conidiogenous cells 5–10 × 2–4 µm, hyaline, enteroblastic, phialidic, lageniform to subcylindrical, thick- and smooth-walled. Conidia 10–18 × 3–5 µm ( = 14.5 × 4 µm; n = 30), hyaline, cylindrical, with an obtuse apex and a slightly truncate base, 0–1-septate, thick- and smooth-walled, guttulate.
