Orbilia querci, a new nematode-trapping fungus, was found on rotten wood of Quercus sp. in Huai-rou County, Beijing, China. It is characterized by having a tear-shaped spore body in the cylindrical ascospore. Pure culture was obtained from the ascospores. Conidiophores were simple or occasionally branched, bearing a single conidium on the tip. Conidia were spindle-shaped, mostly with 3-septa. Nematodes were captured by means of adhesive stalked knobs. The adhesive knobs were produced frequently… Expand

Orbilia yuanensis sp. nov. and its anamorph
TLDR
A new species of the genus Orbilia, O. yuanensis, was collected from Yunnan Province (China) and Taiwan and it has rod-shaped ascospores with a tear-shaped spore body, Morphologically, this anamorph fits the polyphyletic genus Anguillospora. Expand
Pseudotripoconidium, a new anamorph genus connected to Orbilia
A new anamorphic fungus is described based on four isolates from ascospores of Orbilia aff. luteorubella. This fungus differs from previously known Orbilia anamorphs in producing inversely pyramidal,Expand
Pseudorbilia gen . nov . ( Orbiliaceae ) from Yunnan , China
A new orbiliaceous fungus, Pseudorbilia bipolaris gen. et sp. nov., is described. This fungus was collected from decayed coniferous wood on the floor of a semi-tropical forest in YiLiang County,Expand
Orbilia dorsali a sp. nov., the teleomorph of Dactylella dorsali a sp. nov.
TLDR
The analysis of ribosomal DNA ITS sequences of morphologically similar species (including teleomorphs and anamorphs) and representative species of Dactylell a genus also support the establishment of the new species D. O. dorsali a. Expand

TLDR
Three new species belonging to the family Orbiliaceae were recorded to the Turkish mycobiota at family level and can be characterized by the presence of thin ascospores along with the small ascocarps. Expand
