Abstract

Mycoarthris corallina is described from stream foam in the U.K. The fungus produces white colonies with a light-induced salmon-coloured pigmentation. Chains of rod-like arthroconidia are formed on sympodially proliferating conidiophores. No teleomorph is known, but phylogenetic analyses of partial sequences of ITS1-2 and SSU rDNA indicate a relationship with the Hyaloscyphaceae (Ascomycota, Helotiales).
