Pseudobaeospora lilacina sp. nov., the first report of the genus from China
A new species, Pseudobaeospora lilacina, is described based on materials collected from Guangdong Province, China. The fungus represents the first record of the genus in China. The new species is characterized by its lilac pileus, stubbly stipe, and ellipsoid spores. Phylogenetic analyses of the internal transcribed spacer regions (ITS) and nuclear ribosomal RNA gene large subunit (nrLSU) support P. lilacina within Pseudobaeospora and as distinct from all other sequenced species of the genus. The combination of morphological and molecular data confirmed the fungus to be new. The new species is compared to morphologically similar species and its taxonomic position is discussed.
