Mycosphaerellales » Mycosphaerellaceae


Stictosepta Petr., Sydowia 17: 230 (1964).

Index Fungorum number: IF 10100; Facesoffungi number: FoF 07603, 1 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2022), no molecular data available.

Mycelium immersed, branched, septate, hyaline. Sexual morph: Unknown. Asexual morph: Conidiomata eustromatic, immersed, globose to collabent, papillate, unilocular, often convoluted, hyaline; walls thick, of hyaline, thin-walled textura intricata. Ostiole central and circular, single, furfuraceous. Conidiophores hyaline, septate, branched, anastomosing, formed from the inner cells of the locular wall. Conidiogenous cells sympodial or synchronous, integrated, indeterminate, hyaline, thin-walled, with usually two small, unthickened, apical, slightly protuberant conidiogenous loci. Conidia solitary, hyaline, thin-walled, smooth, multiseptate, slightly constricted at the septa, each cell medianly guttulate, straight or curved, base truncate, apex obtuse (adapted from Quaedvlieg et al. 2013 and Videira et al. 2017).


 Type species: Stictosepta cupularis Petr.


Notes: Stictosepta is characterised by immersed, globose to collabent, papillate conidiomata, central and circular, single, furfuraceous ostiole, hyaline, septate, branched, anastomosing conidiophores and solitary, hyaline, thin-walled, smooth, multiseptate conidia. The placement of Stictosepta in Mycosphaerellaceae is doubtful. Fresh collections with DNA sequence data are needed to confirm the generic placement of Stictosepta.
