Andrew Nicholas Miller, Sabine M. Huhndorf

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Cercophora atropurpurea sp. nov. and C. rugulosa sp. nov. are described and illustrated based on material from Ecuador and Puerto Rico. Cercophora striata, previously known only from type material, is redescribed and fully illustrated from additional material collected in Costa Rica and Panama. Colony characteristics are reported for all three species and anamorphs illustrated when available. Cercophora atropurpurea differs from other members of the genus in having ovoid to vertically elongate, dark purple, warty ascomata and C. rugulosa differs in having globose to subglobose, rugulose ascomata.
