A new endophytic species of Chaetomium from Jatropha podagrica
A new endophytic species of Chaetomium from fruits of Jatropha podagrica is described from Maharashtra State, India. A combined sequence dataset of the ITS region, LSU rDNA, and β-tubulin genes supports recognition of this fungus as a new species that is largely concordant with morphological characters. Chaetomium jatrophae is characterized by spirally coiled, predominantly unbranched, and coarsely roughened terminal ascomatal hairs and elongate-ellipsoidal ascospores with a subapical or lateral germ pore. It is a mesophilic Chaetomium species with a temperature maximum of 40±0.2°C.
