Pseudoanungitea Crous, in Crous et al., Fungal Systematics and Evolution 1: 199 (2018).

         Index Fungorum number: IF 824789; Facesoffungi number: FoF 08833, 2 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2021), 2 species with molecular data.

Saprobic on host. Asexual morph: Mycelium consisting of branched, septate, brown, smooth, 2–3 mm diam hyphae. Conidiophores solitary, erect, septate, sub cylindrical, brown, smooth, straight to flexuous. Conidiogenous cells terminal and intercalary, sub cylindrical to clavate; scars arranged in a rachis, prominent, thickened, darkened and refractive. Conidia fusoid-ellipsoid, pale brown, smooth, prominently guttulate, 0–1-septate, hila somewhat darkened and refractive, in short (1–2) unbranched chains. Sexual morph: Unknown (Adapted from Crous et al. 2018).


Type species: Pseudoanungitea syzygii (Crous, W.B. Kendr. & M.J. Wingf.) Crous


Notes: Pseudoanungitea was introduced by Crous et al. (2018) with P. syzygii as type species. Pseudoanungitea is characterized by branched, septate, brown mycelium, sub cylindrical, brown conidiophores, sub cylindrical to clavate conidiogenous cells, fusoid-ellipsoid, pale brown conidia. Pseudoanungitea differs from Anungitea in having terminal and intercalary conidiogenous cells, and refractive, thickened scars that give rise to short conidial chains with somewhat darkened and refractive hila. Pseudoanungitea is currently a distinct and well-supported genus in Venturiaceae.
