  journal={Mycopathologia et mycologia applicata},
A new species ofPseudoarachniotus, P. hyalinosporus, is described and illustrated. A total of 54 isolates of this species was studied and their growth was compared on several media. Although certain differences appeared in colonial coloration and growth characteristics, all strains were similar in 2 fundamental characteristics, viz., type of ascospore and type of gametangial initials and their subsequent development. The initials in early stages are often so closely appressed one to another… Expand

Observations on gymnoascaceae. IX. A new species of pseudoarachniotus from soil-burial beds
A new species ofPseudoarachniotus P. marginosporus can be distinguished from other species of the genus by colonial coloration which varies from ochre-rust to very pale yellow at different stages of maturation. Expand
A new genus of the Gymnoascaceae with a rudimentary peridium
A new genus of the Gymnoascaceae, Petalosporus nodulosus, characterized by the formation of a discrete but often fragmentary ascocarp the peridium of which undergoes partial disarticulation at maturity, is described. Expand
A new species of petalosporus
The new species ofPetalosporus differs from the only other species of the genus, P. nodulosus, by the lack of thick-walled peridial hyphae with enlargements at the septa and by the absence of disarticulation of peridIAL elements. Expand
Studies on some Pseudoarachniotus species from India
In the course of the studies on the members of Eurotiales among the soil fungi in India, several members of the Gymnoascaceae were isolated including a new genus Narasimhella THIRUM, which is characterized by stipitate fruiting bodies and is distinct from Onygenaceae. Expand
Biological species and variation in arthroderma
The distinctive peridial appendages of arthroderma and the conidia of certain species were so similar as to be value-less for the delimitation of species, and morphological and physiological variation was found to be as great within, as between, species. Expand
Studies on keratinophilic fungi. Ix: Neoarachnotheca gen. nov. and a new species of Nannizziopsis
Keratinophila, the type species, characterized by wavy peridial hyphae has been isolated from marine and river sediments and Myriodontium keratinophilum is its anamorph. Expand
Xerotolerant fungi in house dust: taxonomy of Spiromastix, Pseudospiromastix and Sigleria gen. nov. in Spiromastigaceae (Onygenales, Eurotiomycetes)
Seven of the eight species lacked sexual states and only characters of asexual states and growth rates on different media could be used to characterize them, so the placement of Spiromastigaceae within Onygenales was supported. Expand
Variation in Gymnoascus reessii Baranetzky
It appears that varieties of Gymnoascus reessii cannot readily be distinguished and these groupings merge into one another. Expand
Survey of keratinophilic fungi inhabiting Passer domesticus in two districts of Orissa, India
The distribution patterns of keratinophilic fungi isolated from Passer domesticus of a coastal and an intercoastal district were compared with respect to three parameters, season, age and sex and Chrysosporium tropicum and Rollandina hyalinospora showed the highest frequency of occurrence. Expand
A preliminary survey of cycloheximide-resistant airborne fungi in Turin, Italy
A significant number of potential opportunistic pathogens was isolated, including mesophilic species and eight thermotolerant species that appear not to have been reported previously from air samples. Expand

Observations on Gymnoascaceae. V. Developmental Morphology of Two Species Representing a New Genus of the Gymnoascaceae
Two species, Pseudoarachniotus roseus and P. citrinus, are described as representatives of a new genus of Gymnoascaceae, and one of these species is described as new. Expand
