Pseudorobillarda eucalypti N. Tangthirasunun & K.D. Hyde, in Tangthirasunun, et al., Phytotaxa 176(1): 255 (2014)
Facesoffungi number: FoF 07561
Saprobic on dead leaves of eucalyptus. Sexual morph: undetermined. Asexual morph: Conidiomata 255–330 µm diam., 350–500 µm high, black, pycnidial, scattered to gregarious, semi-immersed to superficial, subglobose to obclavate, unilocular, glabrous, thick-walled, ostiolate. Ostiole 160–190 × 60–90 µm, single, subcylindrical, centrally located, with a long ostiolar canal. Conidiomatal wall 30–120 µm thick, composed of thick-walled, brown to hyaline cells of textura angularis in the exterior, gradually merging with textura porrecta or textura prismatica towards conidial hymenium. Paraphyses absent. Conidiophores reduced to conidiogenous cells. Conidiogenous cells 6–17 × 2–5 µm, hyaline, enteroblastic, phialidic, short-cylindrical, ampulliform, lageniform, thick-walled, smooth. Conidia 15–18 × 5–8 µm ( = 17 × 6 µm; n = 30), hyaline, subcylindrical to fusiform, rounded at apex, truncated at base, aseptate, guttulate, thick-walled, smooth, bearing 2–3-unbranched, filiform, attenuated, flexuous, apical appendages extracellular in the upper half of apical cell (10–19 µm long).
