Camptomeriphila Crous & M.J. Wingf., in Crous et al., Persoonia 37: 335 (2016).

Index Fungorum number: IF 819083; Facesoffungi number: FoF 08479, 1 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2021), 1 species with molecular data.

Saprobic on leaves. Sexual morph: Unknown. Asexual morph: Mycelium consisting of branched, septate, smooth, pale brown, hyphae, forming thick-walled, brown, verruculose, intercalary chlamydospores. Conidiophores in loose fascicles, erect, branched, flexuous, multiseptate, pale brown, smooth. Conidiogenous cells integrated, terminal and lateral, subcylindrical, pale brown, smooth; scars thickened, darkened, refractive. Conidia solitary, fusoid-ellipsoid, becoming obclavate when mature, subhyaline to pale brown, smooth, apex subobtuse, hilum protruding, truncate, thickened, darkened, refractive (Adapted from Crous et al. 2016).


Type species: Camptomeriphila leucaenae Crous & M.J. Wingf.


Notes: Camptomeriphila is characterised by pale brown hyphae, flexuous, multiseptate conidiophores, terminal and lateral, subcylindrical conidiogenous cells, and fusoid-ellipsoid conidia. Camptomeriphila resembles Passalora. It is not possible to morphologically differentiate between Camptomeriphila and other passalora-like taxa (Crous et al. 2016). Camptomeriphila can be identified based on DNA sequence data and is a distinct and well-supported genus in Mycosphaerellaceae. Molecular markers available for Camptomeriphila are ITS, LSU, actin (act A) and RPB2.
