Denticularia Deighton, Trans. Br. mycol. Soc. 59(3): 421 (1972).
Index Fungorum number: IF 7956; Facesoffungi number: FoF 08598, 7 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2021), molecular data unavailable.
Parasitic, causing leaf spots. Sexual morph: Unknown. Asexual morph: Mycelium immersed. Conidiophores arising from stromata, densely crowded, brown, mostly simple, smooth, thin-walled, continuous or few septate, sympodial, polyblastic, denticulate, not cicatrized, the denticles short and subcylindrical with a truncate unthickened apex. Conidia pale brown, more or less fusiform, catenate, with the hila and scars unthickened, thin-walled, smooth or very minutely rough-walled, continuous or uniseptate (adapted from Deighton 1972).
Type species: Denticularia modesta (Syd.) Deighton
Notes: Denticularia is characterised by immersed mycelium, simple brown conidiophores and pale brown, more or less fusiform conidia. Molecular data is lacking for the genus and cultures of the type species are needed to confirm the correct taxonomic position of Denticularia. The placement of Denticularia in Mycosphaerellaceae is doubtful.
