Taxonomic and phylogenetic revision of Coniophora arachnoidea, C. opuntiae, and C. prasinoides
The authors revised type material from three Coniophora species (C. arachnoidea, C. opuntiae and C. prasinoides), applying morphological techniques. A phylogenetic analysis of ITS sequences was conducted for several related Coniophora species. C. opuntiae is proposed to represent a synonym of C. arachnoidea, whereas C. prasinoides is maintained as an independent taxon. Microphotographs of the most representative characters of the specimens are presented.
