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; Facesoffungi number: FoF 04013, 1 morphological species (Species Fungorum, 2022), 1 species with molecular data.

Saprobic in terrestrial habitat. Sexual morph: Unknown. Asexual morph: Hyphomycetous developing on surface of host epidermis. Sporodochia compact, composed of cushion-like pseudoparenchymatous cells, bearing tightly aggregated, fasciculate, parallelly arranged cylindrical conidiophores. Conidiophores macronematous, mononematous, caespitose, erect to flexuous, unbranched, aseptate to 1-2-septate, torsive, brown to dark brown, smooth-walled, slightly ampulliform at base, undulated at above half. Conidiogenous cells polyblastic, sympodial, integrated, terminal, cylindrical, with large, cicatrized scars. Conidia acropleurogenous, solitary, simple, straight or moderately curved, fusiform or ellipsoidal, brown to olivaceous brown when mature, 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 accommodates hyphomycetous species characterised 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 ITS, LSU and SSU.
