Dimorphosporicola Crous, in Crous & Groenewald, Fungal Biology 120(11): 1412 (2016)
Index Fungorum number: IF 816148; Facesoffungi number: FoF 08311, 1 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2021), 1 species with molecular data.
Saprobic on host. Sexual morph: Unknown. Asexual morph: Conidiomata pycnidial, erumpent, globose, pale brown, with several dark brown ostioles per conidioma; wall of 2–3 layers of pale brown textura angularis. Conidiophores reduced to conidiogenous cells, hyaline, smooth, lining the inner cavity, ampulliform to doliiform, phialidic with minute collarette, at times with percurrent proliferation. Paraphyses intermingled among conidiogenous cells, hyaline, smooth, subcylindrical, aseptate. Conidia dimorphic. Macroconidia cylindrical, straight or slightly curved, with obtuse ends, guttulate, hyaline, aseptate, smooth. Microconidia hyaline, smooth, ellipsoid, apex obtuse, base truncate, aseptate (Adapted from Crous and Groenewald 2016).
Type species: Dimorphosporicola tragani Crous
Notes: Dimorphosporicola was introduced by Crous and Groenewald (2016) with D. tragani as type species. Dimorphosporicola differs from Coleophoma in having conidiogenous cells that can proliferate per currently, and having dimorphic conidia. Dimorphosporicola is a distinct and well-supported genus in Neocamarosporiaceae.
