New species and combinations of conidial fungi from the semi-arid Caatinga biome of Brazil
During a survey of conidial fungi carried out in aquatic and terrestrial habitats in the semi-arid Caatinga biome of Brazil, three new species were found on decaying plants. Anungitopsis caatingensis sp. nov. was found on decaying leaves collected in a terrestrial habitat. Codinaea pindobacuensis sp. nov. and Stanjehughesia clavata sp. nov. were found on decaying leaves and decaying bark collected in freshwater, respectively. Descriptions, illustrations and comments are presented, including a key to accepted species of Anungitopsis. Three species of Janetia are transferred to Linkosia and two species are proposed as synonyms: Minimelanolocus machili is synonymous with Cacumisporium pleuroconidiophorum and Janetia curviapicis is synonymous with Stanjehughesia hamatiella.
