Savoryellomycetidae, Fuscosporellales, Fuscosporellaceae, Mucispora

Index Fungorum number: IF552293; Facesoffungi number: FoF 02427; 3 morphological species; 3 species with sequence data.

 

Saprobic on dead substrates from freshwater microhabitats. Asexual morph: Hyphomycetous. Colonies effuse, dark brown to black, hairy. Mycelium partly immersed, partly superficial, comprising pale brown to dark brown, branched, septate hyphae. Conidiophores macronematous, mononematous, solitary or densely aggregated, simple, cylindrical, smooth, brown, erect or slightly flexuous, some proliferating percurrently, septate. Conidiogenous cells monoblastic, holoblastic, integrated, terminal, cylindrical, pale brown, smooth. Conidia developing at the apex, solitary, simple, smooth, ellipsoidal to obovoid, hyaline to subhyaline when immature with evident septa, dark brown at maturity, generally paler at the base, base truncate, sometimes surrounded by a hyaline mucilaginous sheath. Sexual morph: Unknown (adapted from Yang et al. 2016b).

 

Type species: Mucispora obscuriseptata Jing Yang, Bhat & K.D. Hyde, in Yang, Maharachchikumbura, Bhat, Hyde, McKenzie, Jones, Al-Sadi & Yumlong, Cryptog. Mycol. 37(4): 466 (2016)

 

Notes: Mucispora is similar to Monotosporella in having macronematous, mononematous conidiophores, monoblastic conidiogenous cells and brown, ellipsoidal, clavate or obovoid conidia. However, they are phylogenetically distinct. Phylogenetic studies showed Mucispora grouped in Fuscosporellales (Yang et al. 2016b, 2017), while Monotosporella clustered within Pleurotheciales (Hernández-Restrepo et al. 2017).
