Rogers, J. D., Vasilyeva, L. & Hay, F. (2008). – New Xylariaceae from Hawaii and Texas (USA).
Sydowia 60 (2): 277–286
Four undescribed species of xylariaceous fungi are described here. The following two taxa were collected on the Island of Kauai, Hawaii. Biscogniauxia viscosicentra var. macrospora differs from the typical variety in the larger size of ascospores. Nemania kauaiensis differs from N. macrocarpa, also from Hawaii, in its larger ascospores and smaller perithecia. The following two taxa were collected in the Big Thicket National Preserve of Texas. Camillea texensis highly resembles C. fossulata, but differs in its unornamented ascospores and minute ascus apical ring. Hypoxylon rosieri differs from H. fuscum primarily in the purple pigment extracted in KOH from stromata.
