A total of 15 species of saprobe anamorphic fungi collected in a fragment of jungle of the Centro de Interpretación y Convivencia con la Naturaleza Yumka' in the state of Tabasco are described. For all species studied, the number of records worldwide are scarce, a reason for which we consider them to be rare. Of the species studied, six are new reports for the Neotropical region and all represent new records for Mexico and Tabasco. In addition, eight of them had not been reported since their original description. A morphological description, illustrations and up-to-date known world distributions are included for each taxon. A new name Sporidesmium multiforme nom. nov is proposed for Sporidesmium polymorphum R.F. Castañeda. The descriptions that appear were done from material extracted directly from the leaf litter.

    Background and Aims: Seemannaralia appears to be fundamentally different from all other Araliaceae in the presence of a well-developed symplicate zone in its gynoecium, as well as in the ovule insertion in the symplicate zone (rather than in the cross-zone). The present investigation re-examined...

    Dieback of red currant ( Ribes rubrum) and gooseberry ( Ribes uva-crispa) is an increasing problem in commercial fields in the Netherlands. Field surveys were done in 2006-2007 and samples with dieback symptoms were analysed. In this study the causal agent was diagnosed as Eutypa lata, based on...

    An encyclopedia entry for "Sporothrix schenckii" is presented. It refers to a species of genus Sporothrix, a dimorphic, imperfect fungi that is the agent that causes sporotrichosis. It lives in soil or vegetation and is transmitted when infected thorns enter subcutaneous tissues. It parasitizes...

    Water samples from a Canadian stream were passed through membrane filters between 22 July 2002 and 19 May 2003. Filters with trapped conidia of aquatic hyphomycetes were cut in half. One half was examined under a light microscope, and conidia were counted and identified. From the second half,...

    The gynoecium of 122 species and 14 varieties of Cuscuta (dodders) was investigated by light and scanning electron microscopy to assess its diversity and evolution and to provide a morphological foundation for understanding the different reproductive strategies encountered in the genus. Data...
