Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An interesting pyrenomycete with an amyloid ascal ring and apiosporous ascospores with germ slits was collected in Brazil. It possesses a unique stromal wall in which the hyphae in the endostroma disintegrate into a bright yellow powder. This species cannot be accommodated in any recognized genus in the Xylariales and is therefore described as Diamantinia citrina gen. et sp. nov.
