In a recent study unusual taxa of epiphyllous ascomycota belonging to Chaetothyriaceae (Eurotiomycetes) were collected in northern Thailand. This family is poorly understood due to morphological confusion and lack of phylogenetic studies. This paper deals with three new species, Ceramothyrium thailandicum, Chaetothyrium brischofiacola and Phaeosaccardinula ficus, which are fully described and illustrated. A DNA sequence analyses of LSU and ITS rDNA genes shows that the new species cluster in the Chaetothyriaceae. This paper adds six sequences for Chaetothyriaceae to GenBank, providing much needed data for the family. © 2012 by The Mycological Society of America.

Fungal Diversity | Year: 2010
Fungal endophytes associated with the oil palm, Elaeis guineensis, at an oil palm plantation in Trang Province, Thailand were investigated. Two samplings at the same site yielded 162 and 178 morphotypes. The overall colonization rate was 81 and 87%, respectively, with non-sporulating species being most common. Twenty strains were identified as basidiomycetes using morphological characteristics and confirmed at the molecular level using ribosomal DNA LSU and ITS sequence data. Species included Fomitopsis cf. meliae, F. cf. ostreiformis, F. cf. pinicola, Perenniporia sp., Pycnoporus sanguineus, Trametes lactinea, and Schizophyllum commune. Leaves supported the greatest number of basidiomycetous taxa (11 strains) with five and four taxa from petioles and rachides, respectively. Twelve taxa produced poroid basidiomes in PDA culture, while the remainder had clamp-connections. Basidiomycetes occurring as saprobes on oil palm were also recorded and compared with those present as endophytes. © Kevin D. Hyde 2010.
