Pachyramichloridium Videira & Crous, in Videira et al., Stud. Mycol. 87: 371 (2017).
Index Fungorum number: IF 822600; Facesoffungi number: FoF 08531, 1 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2021), 1 species with molecular data.
Pathogenic on host. Sexual morph: Unknown. Asexual morph: Mycelium composed by dimorphic hyphae, hyaline to pale olivaceous, or olivaceous to dark brown and thick-walled, verrucose often with irregular clumps of pale olivaceous, capsular material. Conidiophores simple, erect, emerging from hyphae, wall thick and smooth, dark olivaceous brown, aseptate or septate, slightly tapering towards the apex. Conidiogenous cells terminal, subhyaline to brown, with scattered conidiogenous loci, flat or slightly protuberant, slightly darkened. Conidia solitary, pale olivaceous, thin-walled, smooth, obovate to obconical, hila slightly darkened (adapted from Videira et al. 2017).
Type species: Pachyramichloridium pini (de Hoog & Rahman) C. Nakash., Videira & Crous
Notes: Pachyramichloridium differs from Ramichloridium in having darker, shorter, stout conidiophores. Phylogenetically, Pachyramichloridium is a distinct genus in Mycosphaerellaceae. Molecular markers available for Pachyramichloridium include ITS, LSU and RPB2.
