A multi-locus phylogeny based on combined sequences of rDNA ITS, EF1-a, GPDH and LSU revealed two new saprobic Curvularia species from grasses and dead wood in northern Thailand. The novel species, Curvularia alcornii and C. asianensis are introduced, fully described, illustrated, and compared to similar taxa in the genus.
