Neoanungitea Crous, in Crous et al., Persoonia 39: 359 (2017)

          Index Fungorum number: IF 823489; Facesoffungi number: FoF 07702, 2 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2021), 1 species with molecular data.

Saprobic or pathogenic on leaf. Sexual morph: Unknown. Asexual morph: Mycelium consisting of hyaline to pale brown, smooth to verruculose, branched, septate. Conidiophores erect, solitary, frequently arising from a brown stroma or from superficial hyphae, subcylindrical, flexuous, medium brown, roughened, multiseptate, thick-walled. Conidiogenous cells terminal, subcylindrical, medium brown, finely roughened, forming a terminal rachis with several sympodial loci, flat-tipped, unthickened. Conidia in short, branched chains, fusoid to ellipsoid, (0–)3-septate, pale brown, roughened, ends obtuse, hila slightly thickened (adapted from Crous et al. 2017).


Type species: Neoanungitea eucalypti Crous


Notes: Neoanungitea was introduced by Crous (2017) with N. eucalypti as type species. Neoanungitea is characterized by conidiogenous cells forming a terminal rachis with flat-tipped sympodial loci. Neoanungitea resembles Anungitea and Anungitopsis but can be differentiated based on DNA sequence data. Neoanungitea is a well-supported genus in Microthyriaceae.
