Diadema ahmadii (Pleosporales), a new ascomycetous species from Pakistan
Diadema ahmadii sp. nov. is described, illustrated, and compared with similar taxa. This species was collected from dead branches of Rosa moschata in Kaghan Valley, an alpine region in Pakistan. Diadema ahmadii is most similar to D. tetramerum, the type species of the genus, in that it has asci and ascospores of similar dimensions. However, D. ahmadii is distinguished from the latter and other related species by having ascospores with a submedian primary septum.
