Atractiellales » Phleogenaceae


Basidiopycnides J. Reid, Eyjólfsd. & Georg Hausner 2008, in Hausner et al., Mycotaxon 103: 285 (2008).

Etymology: From the generic name Basidiopycnis, and -ides (Latin, = like, connected with)

Diagnosis (in Latin): Hyphomycetus. Hyphae hyalinae, leaves, septatae sine fibulis, cellulae binucleatae. Conidiophora ab initio ex hypha singulare erecta constantia; postea regulatim multo ramificantia, sic habitu mononemata vel macronemata. Conidiophora singula suis lateribus adhaerescentia, habitu saepe turbinata. Cellula conidiogena terminalis, annellophorum percurrens, primo ad apicem conidium singulare formans posteaque, primum conidium secessum, successive conidia additicia holoblastica formans. Conidia in guttas mucosas aggregata, unicellularia, hyalina, laevigata; oblonga vel breviter clavate apicibus obtusis, sed basibus truncatis cum fimbriis curtis basilaribus. Conidia plerumque tempore germinationis nova annellophora emittunt.
