Denticularia Deighton, Trans. Br. mycol. Soc. 59(3): 421 (1972).
Index Fungorum number: IF 7956; Facesoffungi number: FoF 08598, 7 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2021), molecular data unavailable.
Parasitic fungi, causing leaf spots. Asexual morph: Mycelium immersed. Conidiophores arising from stromata, densely crowded, brown, mostly simple, smooth, thin walled, continuous or few septate, sympodial, polyblastic, denticulate, not cicatrized, the denticles short and sub cylindrical with a truncate unthickened apex. Conidia pale brown, more or less fusiform, catenulate, with the hila and scars unthickened, thin-walled, smooth or very minutely rough-walled, continuous or 1-septate (Adapted from Deighton 1972).
Type species: Denticularia modesta (Syd.) Deighton
Notes: Denticularia was introduced by Deighton (1972) with D. modesta as type species. Denticularia is characterized by immersed mycelium, simple brown conidiophores, pale brown, more or less fusiform conidia. Molecular data is lacking for the genus and cultures of the type species are needed to confirm the correct taxonomic position of Mycosphaerellaceae. Currently, Denticularia is treated as a doubtful genus in Mycosphaerellaceae.
