Zhurbenko M. P. (2009) New and interesting lichenicolous hypocrealean fungi from the Northern Hemisphere.
Sydowia 61 (1): 177–188
Two lichenicolous fungi of the family Bionectriaceae (Hypocreales) are described: Paranectria alstrupii (on Psoroma from Greenland) and Pronectria lecideicola (on Lecidea from Svalbard). Neobarya peltigerae is recorded as new for North America, Pronectria walkerorum and Xenonectriella lutescens for Russia and Asia. A revised description of the latter species is also provided, and Peltigera is reported as its new host. A key to all hypocrealean fungi growing on Peltigera is included.
Keywords: Neobarya, Paranectria, Pronectria, Xenonectriella, taxonomy, distribution.
