Neocamarosporium Crous & M.J. Wingf., in Crous et al., Persoonia 32: 273 (2014)

 Index Fungorum number: IF 808949; Facesoffungi number: FoF 00528, 20 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2021), 20 species with molecular data.

Saprobic on leaf. Sexual morph: Unknown. Asexual morph: Conidiomata brown to black, immersed, becoming erumpent, globose with papillate apex and central ostiole; wall of 3–6 layers of brown textura angularis. Conidiophores reduced to conidiogenous cells. Conidiogenous cells lining the inner layer of conidioma, separate, hyaline, smooth, ampulliform; proliferating several times per currently near apex, or at the same level, giving rise to prominent periclinal thickening. Conidia solitary, initially hyaline, aseptate, thick-walled, developing a central septum and then becoming muriformly septate, shape variable from globose to obovoid to ellipsoid, golden brown, finely roughened, thick-walled (Adapted from Crous et al. 2014)


Type species: Neocamarosporium goegapense Crous & M.J. Wingf.


Notes: Neocamarosporium was introduced by Crous and M.J. Wingf. in Crous et al. (2014) with N. goegapense as type species. Neocamarosporium is similar to Camarosporium in having pycnidial conidiomata, hyaline, percurrently proliferating conidiogenous cells, and brown, muriform conidia. Neocamarosporium is distinct based on DNA sequence data.
