Keywords

The new species Atractilina alinae and Neosporidesmium vietnamense, collected in Vietnam on fallen leaves of an unidentified tree and on bark of a twig of an unknown tree, respectively, are described, illustrated and discussed. A. alinae resembles the hyperparasitic A. parasitica, but differs in having quite distinct conidia. Neosporidesmium vietnamense is morphologically unique by its synnematous, indeterminate conidiomata, integrated, terminal, monoblastic, non-proliferating conidiogenous cells and obclavate, rostrate, euseptate conidia, but taxonomically rather complex with regard to its generic affinity.

Abstract

Nine new species of cercosporoid fungi were found on leaves of plants in family Fabaceae from the Brazilian Cerrado: Asperisporium galactiae on Galactia peduncularis, Sirosporium sclerolobii and Zasmidium sclerolobii on Sclerolobium paniculatum, Pseudocercospora acosmii-subelegantis on Acosmium subelegans, and Pseudocercospora stryphnodendri on Stryphnodendron adstringens. In addition, four other Pseudocercospora species were found on Cassia s. lat., including Chamaecrista and Senna: Pseudocercospora aquae-emendadasensis on Chamaecrista orbiculata; Pseudocercospora sennae, Pseudocercospora sennae-rugosae, and Pseudocercospora subcuticularis on Senna rugosa. Descriptions, illustrations, and discussions of the new taxa are supplemented by keys to Pseudocercospora species on hosts belonging to Cassia s. lat., and to Zasmidium species on Fabaceae.

Abstract
Keywords

The new species Kiliophora novozhilovii (Ascomycota, Incertae sedis), found in Vietnam on a dead leaf of an unidentified tree, is described, illustrated, compared with other species assigned to Kiliophora, and keyed out. The asexual, hyphomycetous ascomycete Zanclospora cf. novae-zelandiae has been found in Vietnam for the first time. This hitherto rarely encountered species is described and illustrated based on the Vietnamese collection, and its taxonomy is briefly discussed.
