Bellemerella acarospo rae and B. polyspo rinae (Verrucariales), two new species of lichenicolous fungi from Spain
Calatayud, Vicent; Navarro-Rosinés, Pere
Two species of the genus of lichenicolous fungi Bellemerella (Verrucariales) are described as new to science: Bellemerella acarosporae Calatayud & Nav. -Ros. (host species: Acarospora Juscata), and B. polysporinae Calatayud & Nav.-Ros. (host species: Polysporina simplex). So far, they are known only from their type localities, in eastern Spain. Both species mainly differ from B. trapeliae, the only species previously known in this genus, by their wider ascospores and their different host species.
