Capnodiales » Capnodiales genera incertae sedis


Catenulomyces Egidi & de Hoog, in Crous et al., Fungal Systematics and Evolution 3: 126 (2019).

Index Fungorum number: IF 829386; Facesoffungi number: FoF 11080, 1 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2022), 1 species with molecular data.

        Saprobic on rock. Sexual morph: Unknown. Asexual morph: Colonies slow growing, black in reverse, white or grey in the obverse, becoming brown or black in the periphery, compact, lobed, cerebriform, with irregular margin. Conidia septate with thick walls, developing 2 or more longitudinal and/or oblique septa; bulbil-like, brown, intercalary bodies present (adapted from Egidi et al. 2014).


Type species: Catenulomyces convolutus Egidi & de Hoog


Notes: Catenulomyces convolutus was at first invalid and was re-described in Egidi et al. (2019). Catenulomyces is unique in producing conidial chains and curly-shaped conidia and clusters close to Ramimonilia apicalis and Phaeotheca triangularis in phylogenetic analyses (Egidi et al. 2014). The exact phylogenetic position of Catenulomyces is uncertain and is therefore placed in Capnodiales genera incertae sedis. Molecular markers available for Catenulomyces are SSU and ITS. More species and gene regions are needed to confirm the exact taxonomic placement of Catenulomyces.
