Antealophiotrema A. Hashim. & Kaz. Tanaka, in Hashimoto, Matsumura, Hirayama & Tanaka, Persoonia 39: 68 (2017)

 Index Fungorum number: IF 821455; Facesoffungi number: FoF 08182, 1 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2021), 1 species with molecular data.

Saprobic on woody plants. Sexual morph: Ascomata subglobose to depressed ellipsoidal. Ostiolar neck crest-like, elongated, laterally compressed. Peridium composed of globose to rectangular, hyaline to brown cells, with brown hyphae at side. Pseudoparaphyses septate, branched and anastomosed. Asci bitunicate, fissitunicate, cylindrical to clavate, 4–8-spored. Ascospores narrowly fusiform, 1-septate, brown, smooth. Asexual morph: Mycelium superficial, brown. Conidiophores absent. Conidiogenous cells holoblastic, integrated, terminal, brown, truncate, solitary, acrogenous. Conidia globose to obovoid, black, muriform (adapted from Hashimoto et al. 2017).


Type species: Antealophiotrema brunneosporum (Yin. Zhang, J. Fourn. & K.D. Hyde) A. Hashim. & Kaz. Tanaka


Notes: Antealophiotrema differs from Lophiotrema s. str in having a well-developed peridium and monodictys-like asexual morph. Phylogenetically, Antealophiotrema is in a lineage distinct from Lophiotrema s.str and is currently placed in Pleosporales genera incertae sedis. Molecular markers available for Antealophiotrema are ITS, LSU, SSU and TEF-1.
