Capnodiales » Neodevriesiaceae


Neodevriesia Quaedvl. & Crous, in Quaedvlieg et al., Persoonia 33: 24 (2014).

 Index Fungorum number: IF 807768; Facesoffungi number: FoF 07637, 28 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2022), 25 species with molecular data.

Foliicolous on leaves. Sexual morph: Unknown. Asexual morph: Hyphomycetous. Conidiophores dimorphic or not, solitary, medium brown, unbranched, smooth- and thick-walled, flexuous, septate. Conidiogenous cells terminal, medium brown, subcylindrical, smooth, proliferating sympodially; hila flattened, unthickened, somewhat darkened. Ramoconidia 0 (–1)-septate if present, guttulate, subcylindrical, smooth, pale brown; hila somewhat thickened and darkened. Conidia medium brown, smooth, subcylindrical to narrowly fusoid-ellipsoidal or obclavate, apical conidium with obtuse apex, additional conidia with truncate ends, conidia straight to irregularly bent, mostly in unbranched chains; hila slightly darkened (adapted from Quaedvlieg et al. 2014).


Type species: Neodevriesia hilliana (Crous & U. Braun) Quaedvl. & Crous


Notes: Neodevriesia is distinct from Devriesia in having medium brown and unbranched conidiophores while those of Devriesia are pale brown and branched. Neodevriesia is also characterised by thick-walled, medium brown, rarely septate conidia and short and mostly unbranched conidial chains. A new species and 12 new combinations were recently described by Crous et al. (2015b). Molecular markers available for Neodevriesia are ITS, LSU, SSU, Actin, BTUB, RPB2 and TEF-1.
