Aquilomyces

Aquilomyces D.G. Knapp, Kovács, J.Z. Groenew. & Crous, Persoonia 35: 93 (2015).

Index Fungorum number: IF 810756; Facesoffungi number: FoF 08306, 2 morphological species (Species Fungorum, 2022), 2 species with molecular data.

Endophytic on host. Cultural characters: Colonies covering the Petri dish after 4 weeks at 24 °C. Colonies on MMN fluffy, spreading with abundant aerial mycelium, olivaceous-grey to pale-brown with smoke-grey marginal zone. Colonies on MEA smoke-grey to olivaceous-grey, somewhat flat, less fluffy with pale grey marginal zone (Adapted from Knapp et al., 2015).

 

Type species: Aquilomyces patris D.G. Knapp, Kovács, Groenewald & Crous

 

Notes: Aquilomyces was introduced by Knapp (2015) with A. patris as type species. Aquilomyces is a root endophyte and lacks a complete morphological character. The cultural characters are olivaceous-grey to pale-brown with smoke-grey marginal zone mycelium on MMN media and smoke-grey to olivaceous-grey, somewhat flat, less fluffy with pale grey marginal zone on MEA. Aquilomyces was named after the dark-hyphae and colony and in memory of D.G. Knapp’s father, Mr Patris.  Aquilomyces patris is phylogenetically closely related to Morosphaeria ramunculicola (BCC 18405). Aquilomyces is morphologically and phylogenetically a distinct genus in Morosphaeriaceae. Molecular markers available for Aquilomyces are LSU, ITS, Calmodulin (cmdA), actin (actA) and TEF1.
