The genus Piricauda comprises eight species characterized by monotretic conidiogenous cells and micronematous arched conidiophores: P. cochinensis, P. cubensis, P. longispora, P. mexicana, P. paraguayensis, P. pseudarthriae, P. taiwanensis, and P. vulcanensis sp. nov. P. caribensis is transferred to Acrodictys. Species usually colonize dead petioles and(More)
A total of 82 fungal extracts were selected and screened against Mycobacterium tuberculosis and promastigotes of Leishmania mexicana strains. Results showed inhibitory activity in 29 % of the fungal strains against at least one of the targets tested. The most significant antituberculosis (antiTB) effects were presented by Cylindrocarpon sp. XH9B, Fusarium(More)
Fungal metabolites are promising alternatives for the development of biorational pesticides. In this sense, microfungi from tropical regions are valuable sources of natural compounds for pest management. With the aim of broadening the search for new eco-friendly products to manage plant pests, this study was carried out to evaluate the biological activity(More)
Minteriella cenotigena gen. & sp. nov., found on decaying bark submerged in a sinkhole from the southern of Mexico, is described and illustrated. The new taxa is distinguished by synnematous conidiomata, with polyblastic, discrete, indeterminate, sympodially proliferating conidiogenous cells, with flat conidiogenous loci and cylindrical, 3- to 4- (to 5)(More)
During an investigation of anamorphic fungi on tropical plant debris from the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico, two new species in the genera Hughesinia and Stachybotryna were described. Additionally, 15 other anamorphic fungi were determined; five of them are newly recorded for Mexico. Hughesinia heterospora sp. nov. is characterized by conidiophores(More)
