Abstract

Two isolates from Canada and the USA (UAMH 7122 and UAMH 7211, respectively) previously identified as were studied by morphology and six-locus phylogeny (, ITS, , , and ). UAMH 7122 and UAMH 7211 are morphologically related but phylogenetically distinct from (≡) and . Hence, UAMH 7122 and UAMH 7211 are described as a new species, sp. nov. with UAMH 7211 as the holotype. The characters of this species include some phialides proliferating by holoblastic extension of phialides and conidia clavate, subcylindrical or cylindrical ellipsoid, or dumbbell-shaped, dark brown to olivaceous grey when mature, longitudinally striate, 10.3–12.3×3–3.8 µm. A key to the species of is provided.
