Jalapriya M.J. D'souza, Hong Y. Su, Z.L. Luo & K.D. Hyde, in Boonmee et al., Fungal Diversity: 10.1007/s13225-016-0363-z, [21] (2016).

Index Fungorum number: IF 551583; Faceoffungi number: FoF 01269, 3 morphological species (Species Fungorum, 2022), 2 species with molecular data.

Saprobic on decaying wood in aquatic habitats. Sexual morph: Undetermined. Asexual morph: Hyphomycetous. Colonies effuse, dark brown to black. Mycelium immersed or partly superficial, consisting of branched, septate, smooth, subhyaline to pale brown hyphae. Conidiophores micronematous, unbranched, thin-walled, smooth, cylindrical. Conidiogenous cells holoblastic, integrated, determinate, terminal. Conidia acrogenous, solitary, cheiroid, complanate or non-complanate, smooth-walled, euseptate, with 5–7 rows of cells, rows converging or not converging at apex, apical cells with or without appendages.


Type species: Jalapriya pulchra D'souza, Su, Luo & K.D. Hyde


Notes: Jalapriya was introduced by D’souza et al. (2016) to accommodate species found in aquatic habitats with J. pulchra as type species. Jalapriya has unique acrogenous euseptate conidia. Jalapriya is morphologically and phylogenetically a distinct and well-defined genus in Dictyosporiaceae.
