Abstract

Coprophilous species of Ascobolus and Saccobolus from Brazil are poorly known. Fourteen species were identified from fresh herbivore dung recently collected in Pernambuco, Northeastern Brazil, and eight exsiccatti sets were revised from the Pe. Camille Torrend (URM) and Dardano de Andrade Lima (IPA) herbaria. Ascobolus elegans and S. beckii are reported for the first time in South America, while Ascobolus americanus and Saccobolus saccoboloides are reported for the first time in Brazil. Saccobolus infestans is neotypified. Information regarding the distribution and substrate preference of these species is presented. Descriptions and plates are provided, along with an identification key to all known species of Ascobolus and Saccobolus in Brazil.vphantom
