No Description available
The monotypic genus Thysanorea (Chaetothyriomycetes) is characterized by Periconiella-like penicillate conidiophores. The morphology and geographic distribution of Thysanorea papuana are revised based on fresh collections from Taiwan, literature research, and type studies. It is revealed that the original morphological generic characterization is based on cultivation artifacts. On the natural substrate and in fresh isolates, conidiophore heads appear less complex and are shed off and replaced by repeated percurrent regeneration. The species was previously known from Papua New Guinea and India, while this is the first record from Taiwan. Ramichloridium lignicola, which was recorded from Hong Kong and Thailand is recognized as synonymous and Alysidiopsis lignicola recorded from Mexico is a possible synonym. Wang et al. (Mycological Progress (2019) 18:511–522) demonstrated the synonymy of Th. aquatica from Thailand with Th. papuana. The distribution of this species appears to be paleotropical or even pantropical.
|Study Area Description||Taiwan|
The personnel involved in the project:
Two specimens were collected on dead woody substrates in northern and southern Taiwan, respectively, and deposited in the Museum of Natural Science, Taichung, Taiwan (TNM). Isolation of pure culture and morphological investigation were conducted as described in Kirschner (2016). Air-dried specimens from field collections were mounted on stubs, sputter-coated with gold and investigated with scanning electron microscopy (SEM) using a low vacuum scanning electron microscope at National Central University. Loans of type specimens were requested from the herbaria of the Centraalbureau voor Schimmelcultures, Utrecht, The Netherlands (CBS-H), Instituto de Ecología y Sistemática, Havana, Cuba (HAC), and the International Fungal Research & Development Centre, Kunming, China (IFRD).
|Study Extent||One sample each was collected in southern Taiwan (Kaohsiung County) in 2002 and northern Taiwan (Taoyuan City)in 2014. Further specimens were requested or loaned from herbaria in order to cover Hong Kong (the type of Ramichloridium lignicola) and Papua New Guinea (the type of Thysanorea papuana)|
