Taxonomic revision of the genus Cladosporium s. lat. 6. New species, reallocations to and synonyms of Cercospora, Fusicladium, Passalora, Septonema and Stenella
Schubert, Konstanze; Braun, Uwe
Cladosporium araliae is validated as Stenella araliae sp. nov., a fungus with the herbarium name Cladosporium betuligenum is described as Fusicladium betuligenum sp. nov., Septonema acicola nom. nov. and Passalora phalaridis sp. nov. on Phalaris arundinacea are introduced. The new combinations Fusicladium parasiticum, Passalora foveolicola, Stenella eriolobi and S. oxycocci are proposed and detailed descriptions, illustrations and comments are provided. Herbarium material deposited under the name Cladosporium callae proved to be a syntype of Cercospora callae, Cladosporium persicum (in herb.) is identical with Stenella persicae, and Cladosporium herbarum f. rubi has to be reduced to synonymy with Pseudocercospora rubi. Furthermore, a collection deposited as Cladosporium sp. proved to be conspecific with Passalora plucheae.
