Graphium samogiticum - a new hyphomycete species from Lithuania

Motiejūnaitė, Jurga; Alstrup, Vagn


A new species of Graphium, G. samogiticum Motiej. & Alstrup, sp. nov., is described from Lithuania. The fungus inhabits crustose lichens and algae growing on soil in abandoned gravel pits. The new species shows a close resemblance to the lichenicolous G. aphthosae Alstrup & D. Hawksw., differing by the smaller conidiomata and, in particular, by the characteristic tricornute shape of the conidia.
