Four anamorphic fungi (with two new species) from forests of Western Ghats, India
Anaselenosporella indica and Arachnophora goanensis, two new species of anamorphic fungi isolated from decaying plant litter collected from the forest of Goa, India, are described and illustrated. Anaselenosporella indica, found growing on dead twig of an unidentified plant, is characterized by polyblastic, sympodial, discrete, conidiogenous cells and cylindrical, rarely curved, aseptate, hyaline conidia. Arachnophora goanensis, collected from dry decaying bark of an unidentified tree, is characterized by blastic pigmented stauroconidia and blastic hyaline fusiform synanamorphic conidia. Two other species from the monotypic genera Catenosynnema and Cheiromyceopsis are also reported for the first time from India.
