Pseudodidymella fagi gen. et sp. nov. and its hyphomycete anamorph Pycnopleiospora fagi gen. et sp. nov. on Fagus crenata in Japan
The teleomorph of the fungus was found on both artificially and naturally overwintered dis- eased leaves and is described as Pseudodidymellafagi, a new genus and species in the Phaeosphaeriaceae. Expand
Mycodidymella aesculi gen. et sp. nov. and its synanamorphs Blastostroma aesculi gen. et sp. nov. and Mycopappus aesculi sp. nov. on Aesculus turbinata in Japan
The sporodochia may play a main role in secondary infection of the disease as infective bodies in summer because conidia only appeared in late autumn (October) on fallen diseased leaves. Expand
Identity of the plasmodial slime mold Phytoceratiomyxa osmundae and the lectotypification of Taphrina osmundae, the basionym of Mixia osmundae
Investigations on the type specimen, and related descriptions and illustrations of P. osmundae revealed that this microorganism, originally identified as a myxomycete, was phenotypically identical with Mixia o smundae, which was transferred from the Ascomycota to the Basidiomycota based on the integrated analysis of molecules and morphology by Nishida et al. in 1995.

Notes on Japanese Lycoperdaceae. 4. Validation of Japanese giant puffball, Calvatia nipponica
Calvatia nipponica, an invalid name of the Japanese giant puffball, is formally validated as a new species by providing a necessary Latin description and designating the holotype specimen.Expand
Lanceispora amphibia gen. et sp. nov., a new amphisphaeriaceous ascomycete inhabiting senescent and fallen leaves of mangrove
The fungus has amphibious habits, growing on the tree and in intertidal water; and it is adapted to the high osmotic conditions in leaf tissues of the mangroves tree and to the subtropical, brackish water environment of mangrove forests. Expand
