Saprobic on dead bark of T. grandis. Sexual morph: Undetermined. Asexual morph: Colonies on natural sub- strate, punctiform, sporodochial, superficial, gregarious, scattered, numerous, black. Hyphae partly superficial and partly immersed, pale brown to brown, septate, slightly con- stricted at the septa. Conidiophores up to 20 μm long, 2.5– 4 μm wide, micronematous, septate, hyaline, constricted at the septa, arising from hyphae. Conidiogenous cells blastic, integrated, terminal, determinate. Conidia (37–)45– 50(−55) × (22–)27–29(−37) μm (x = 46 × 28 μm, n = 30), dictyosporous, bulbil-like, muriform, initially hyaline, becom- ing brown to golden brown when mature, horizontal on conidiogenous cell, verrucose, slightly constricted at the septa, subglobose to ellipsoidal.


Culture characteristics: Conidia germinating on PDAwithin 24 h. Germ tubes produced around conidia. Colonies on MEA reaching 9–15 mm diam. after 7 days in the dark at 25 °C (x = 14.2 mm, n = 5), edge entire to undulate, flat or effuse at the edge, raised to superficial at the center, dense, fluffy, brownish grey (6E2) from above, brownish grey (7F2) from below Habitat: Known to inhabit dead bark of T. grandis.

Notes: Pseudocoleodictyospora sukhothaiensis is introduced here as a novel species based on its morphology, evidence from phylogenetic analyses and polymorphic nucleotides comparisons. Conidiophores of Ps. tectonae are longer than Ps. sukhothaiensis and Ps. thailandica. Its conidia are longer and wider than both Ps. sukhothaiensis and Ps. thailandica.
