Abstract

An endophytic strain (designated as strain SYPF 8335) was isolated from a root of Panax notoginseng in Wenshan district, Yunnan province of China. Strain SYPF 8335 grew very slowly and formed white colonies. Phylogenetic analysis of four loci indicated that strain SYPF 8335 was placed in the Drechmeria clade with Drechmeria campanulata as its closest phylogenetic neighbour. The nucleotide differences between strain SYPF 8335 and D. campanulata are 30 substitutions in the internal transcriber region region. A key morphological feature that differentiates the two fungi is that D. campanulata produces campanulate conidia. Combined with the morphology and molecular analyses, a new species named Drechmeria panacis sp. nov., is proposed.
