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 was introduced by Crous et al. (2016) with C. leucaenae as type species. Camptomeriphila is characterized by pale brown hyphae, flexuous, multiseptate conidiophores, terminal and lateral, subcylindrical conidiogenous cells, 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.
