Abstract

MARQUES, Marcos Fabio Oliveira; GUSMAO, Luis Fernando Pascholati  and  MAIA, Leonor Costa. Species of Vermiculariopsiella (Hyphomycetes) associated with plant debris in a fragment of Atlantic Rain Forest, "Serra da Jibóia", Bahia State, Brazil. Rev. bras. Bot. [online]. 2008, vol.31, n.4, pp. 659-665. ISSN 1806-9959.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-84042008000400011.

During a survey of microfungi associated to plant debris in a fragment of Atlantic Rain Forest, Serra da Jibóia, Santa Terezinha, Bahia State, from October/2005 to June/2006, four Vermiculariopsiella species were found in association to the decomposition of leaves, petioles and twigs in this ecosystem. V. immersa (Desm.) Bender and V. cubensis (R.F. Castañeda) Nawawi, Kuthub. & B. Sutton are new records for "Serra da Jibóia" and State of Bahia, respectively, V. cornuta (V. Rao & Hoog) Nawawi, Kuthub. & B. Sutton and V. falcata Nawawi, Kuthub. & B. Sutton represent new records for South America. Descriptions and illustrations of morphologic characteristics of the four species, information about substrates and geographical distribution as well as a taxonomic key for all known species of Vermiculariopsiella are provided.

Keywords : Anamorph; fungal diversity; taxonomy.
