Atrocalyx bambusae

Atrocalyx bambusae (Phook., Karun. & K.D. Hyde) N.I. de Silva & K.D. Hyde, in De Silva, Thambugala, Jeewon, Phookamsak, Goonasekara, Lumyong & Hyde, Phytotaxa 333(2): 204 (2018)

Index Fungorum number: IF553934


Note: Hyde et al. (2016) established Lophiotrema bambusae based on molecular phylogeny of combined LSU, SSU and tef1 that indicated L. bambusae sister to L. lignicola. Lophiotrema bambusae collected from bamboo in Thailand differs from other species of Lophiotrema in having slightly larger asci and mature ascospores with more than one septum.
