Abstract

Six new species of bryosymbiotic discomycetes are described from various bryophytes collected in Europe. The new discomycetous (Helotiales, Leotiomycetes) species are: Fuscolachnum necator on Polytrichum juniperinum, Hyphodiscus delitescens on Bazzania trilobata, Microscypha cajaniensis on Ptilidium pulcherrinum and Lophozia sp., Chlorociboria lamellicola on Polytrichastrum alpinum and P. formosum, Belonioscyphella pluriseptata on Dicranum polysetum, and Pezoloma scanicum on Sphagnum squarrosum. In all, four new genera of fungi are added to those containing bryosymbiotic species.
