Abstract: Novel species of fungi described in the present study include the following from Australia:Neoseptorioides eucalypti gen. & sp. nov. from Eucalyptus radiata leaves, Phytophthoragondwanensis from soil, Diaporthe tulliensis from rotted stem ends of Theobroma cacao fruit,Diaporthe vawdreyi from fruit rot of Psidium guajava, Magnaporthiopsis agrostidis from rottedroots of Agrostis stolonifera and Semifissispora natalis from Eucalyptusleaf litter. Furthermore,Neopestalotiopsis egyptiaca is described from Mangifera indica leaves (Egypt), Roussoellamexicana from Coffea arabica leaves (Mexico), Calonectria monticola from soil (Thailand),Hygrocybe jackmanii from littoral sand dunes (Canada), Lindgomyces madisonensis fromsubmerged decorticated wood (USA), Neofabraea brasiliensis from Malus domestica (Brazil), Geastrum diosiae from litter (Argentina), Ganoderma wiiroense on angiosperms (Ghana),Arthrinium gutiae from the gut of a grasshopper (India), Pyrenochaeta telephoni from the screenof a mobile phone (India) and Xenoleptographium phialoconidium gen. & sp. nov. on exposedxylem tissues of Gmelina arborea (Indonesia). Several novelties are introduced from Spain,namely Psathyrella complutensis on loamy soil, Chlorophyllum lusitanicum on nitrifiedgrasslands (incl. Chlorophyllum arizonicum comb. nov.), Aspergillus citocrescens from cavesediment and Lotinia verna gen. & sp. nov. from muddy soil. Novel foliicolous taxa from SouthAfrica include Phyllosticta carissicola from Carissa macrocarpa, Pseudopyricularia hagahagaefrom Cyperaceae and Zeloasperisporium searsiae from Searsia chirindensis. Furthermore, Neophaeococcomyces is introduced as a novel genus, with two new combinations, N. aloes andN. catenatus. Several foliicolous novelties are recorded from La RĂ©union, France, namelyOchroconis pandanicola from Pandanus utilis, Neosulcatispora agaves gen. & sp. nov. fromAgave vera-cruz, Pilidium eucalyptorum from Eucalyptus robusta, Strelitziana syzygii fromSyzygium jambos (incl. Strelitzianaceae fam. nov.) and Pseudobeltrania ocoteae from Ocoteaobtusata (Beltraniaceae emend.). Morphological and culture characteristics along with ITS DNAbarcodes are provided for all taxa.
