In a survey of saprobic conidial fungi from southern China, a new species, Blastophragma beilschmiediae, is proposed. It is characterized by simple mononematous conidiophores with integrated apical polyblastic conidiogenous cells and solitary, acrogenous, 9–13-distoseptate conidia produced on sympodially proliferating conidiogenous cells. Beltraniomyces lignicola, Diplococcium dendrocalami, and Teratosperma cornigerum are newly recorded from China. Notes, illustrations and descriptions based on natural substrates are presented for all species.
