Cercoramularia Videira, H.D. Shin, C. Nakash. & Crous, in Videira et al., Stud. Mycol. 87: 299 (2017).

Index Fungorum number: IF 822581; Facesoffungi number: FoF 08482, 1 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2022), 1 species with molecular data.

Saprobic on host. Mycelium hyaline to brown. Sexual morph: Unknown. Asexual morph: Conidiophores brown to pale brown, emerging from brown hyphae or swollen hyphal cells, smooth, euseptate, straight to geniculate-sinuous, simple or branched, sometimes reduced to conidiogenous cell. Conidiogenous cells integrated, terminal, hyaline to pale brown, monoblastic or proliferating sympodially, with thickened, darkened and refractive conidiogenous loci. Conidia hyaline to pale brown, euseptate, solitary or catenate, holoblastic, fusiform, rounded at the apex when solitary (adapted from Videira et al. 2017).


Type species: Cercoramularia koreana Videira, H.D. Shin, C. Nakash. & Crous


Notes: Cercoramularia is characterised by hyaline to brown mycelium, monoblastic conidiogenous cells and hyaline to pale brown conidia. Cercoramularia is phylogenetically related to Phloeospora and Sphaerulina (Videira et al. 2017). Cercoramularia is a distinct and well-supported genus in Mycosphaerellaceae. Molecular markers available for Cercoramularia include LSU, ITS and RPB2.
