Annellophragmia Subram., Proc. Indian Acad. Sci., Sect. B 58: 349 (1963).
Index Fungorum number: IF 7164; Facesoffungi number: FoF 08582, 1 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2021), molecular data unavailable.
Saprobic on host. Mycelium superficial and immersed. Stroma erumpent, brown and pseudoparenchymatous. Conidiophores macronematous, synnematous, brown, smooth, straight, with each individual stipe unbranched, gathered tightly for most of the length and spreading like a hand fan at the apex. Conidiogenous cells integrated, terminal and intercalary, cylindrical, proliferating sympodially, polyblastic, conidiogenous loci (scars) large, apical and lateral. Conidia solitary, acropleurogenous, pale to dark brown or golden brown, smooth, fusiform to obclavate, truncate at the base, pseudoseptate (Adapted from Videira et al. 2017).
Type species: Annellophragmia coonoorensis (Subram.) Subram.
Notes: Annellophragmia was introduced by Subramanian (1963) with A. coonoorensis as type species. Annellophragmia is characterized by brownish hypophyllous colonies producing solitary, acropleurogenous conidia. The phylogenetic position of Annelophragmia is uncertain and the genus is only known from its hyphomycetous type. Annellophragmia is currently considered as a doubtful genus in Mycospharellaceae.
