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 2022), no molecular data available.
Saprobic on host. Mycelium superficial and immersed. Stroma erumpent, brown and pseudoparenchymatous. Sexual morph: Unknown. Asexual morph: 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 is characterised 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. The placement of Annellophragmia in Mycosphaerellaceae is doubtful.
