Abstract

This study examined over 20 fungal specimens of the Orbiliaceae (Orbiliomycetes) from different regions in China. Our analyses based on morphological traits and the ITS rDNA sequences revealed two new species with drechslerella-like asexual morphs. These new species are able to trap nematodes with constricting rings. In addition, cf. is reported as a new cryptic Chinese variant of European collections of . All three species are described and illustrated in detail in this paper. Their phylogenetic relationships with other orbiliaceous species were identified based on their ITS sequences.
