Abstract

Custingophora undulatistipes sp. nov. and Vanakripa minutiellipsoidea sp. nov. are described from decaying petioles of the palm Eleiodoxa conferta, from Sirindhorn Peat Swamp Forest, southern Thailand. Custingophora undulatistipes is similar to C. suidafrikana in having wavy conidiophores, but it has broader, ellipsoid conidia. Vanakripa minutiellipsoidea is most similar to V. ellipsoidea, but differs in having smaller conidia. Keys to the species assigned to these genera are provided.
