Bhatiellae Wanas., Camporesi & K.D. Hyde, in Wanasinghe et al., Fungal Diversity: 10.1007/s13225-018-0395-7, [107] (2018).

Index Fungorum number: IF 554171; Faceoffungi number: FoF 04013, 1 morphological species (Species Fungorum, 2022), 1 species with molecular data.

Saprobic in terrestrial habitat. Sexual morph: Undetermined. Asexual morph: hyphomycetous forming on surface host epidermis. Sporodochia with cushion-like pseudoparenchymatous cells at the base, composed of compact, fasciculate, foot-like cells at the base, with tightly aggregated, parallel, cylindrical conidiophores. Conidiophores macronematous, mononematous, caespitose, erect to flexuous, unbranched, aseptate, torsive, brown to dark brown, smooth-walled, largely ampulliform at the base, undulated at the upper part. Conidiogenous cells polyblastic, sympodial, integrated, terminal, cylindrical, undulate, with large, cicatrized scars. Conidia acropleurogenous, solitary, simple, straight or moderately curved, cylindrical or ellipsoidal, brown to olivaceous brown when mature, euseptate, 5–8-distoseptate, smooth walled, widest at the middle (Adapted from Wanasinghe et al., 2018).


Type species: Bhatiellae rosae Wanas., Camporesi, E.B.G. Jones & K.D. Hyde


Notes: Bhatiellae was introduced by Wanasinghe et al. (2018) based on the species of B. rosae. Bhatiellae accommodates hyphomycetous species characterized by tightly aggregated sporodochia, macronematous, mononematous, brown to dark brown conidiophores, polyblastic, sympodial, conidiogenous cells with large, cicatrized scars and ellipsoidal to fusiform, 5–8- distoseptate conidia.  Molecular markers available for Bhatiellae include LSU, SSU and ITS.
