Nothopassalora U. Braun, C. Nakash., Videira & Crous, in Videira et al., Stud. Mycol. 87: 333 (2017)
Index Fungorum number: IF 822696; Facesoffungi number: FoF 08527, 1 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2021), 1 species with molecular data.
Phytopathogenic. Sexual morph: Unknown. Asexual morph: Mycelium internal, hyaline to pale brown, branched, septate hyphae. Stromata dark, epidermal, substomatal, subglobose. Conidiophores emerging in fascicles from stromata, through stomata, pale to medium brown, smooth to verruculose, simple, straight to flexuous, geniculate-sinuous at the apex, multiseptate, but sometimes with a single basal septum or reduced to conidiogenous cell. Conidiogenous cells integrated, terminal, proliferating sympodially, mono- or polyblastic, conidiogenous loci rim-like, darkened, thickened and refractive. Conidia solitary, pale brown to olivaceous, smooth, thin-walled, cylindrical to long-obclavate, straight or gently curved, apex rounded and sometimes narrowing into a beak, base rounded or obconically truncate, multiseptate, hila thickened, darkened and refractive, sometimes protruding (Adapted from Videira et al. 2017)
Type species: Nothopassalora personata (Berk. & M.A. Curtis) U. Braun, C. Nakash., Videira & Crous
Notes: Nothopassalora was introduced by Braun et al. (2017) with N. personata as type species. N. personata was previously known as Passalora personata. Nothopassalora morphologically resembles Passalora but can be differentiated based on DNA sequence data.
