Densely Grouped Conidiophores on Phragmites
Peter Thompson, 21-11-2017 11:59
Hello Everyone,

I have found a hyphomycete which grows densely clustered along the small ridges of a dead leaf of Phragmites australis.

The conidiophores are mid-brownish, knobbly, with scars along them and measuring between 68 - 130 x 5 um. They are smooth, regularly septate and thick walled.

The conidia are pale 1- 3-septate, with the largest being 16 - 18.5 x 7.25 - 8 um. Their bases are flattened, where previously attached to the conidiophores.

The closest species which I can find in the literature is Dendryphiella infuscans, but this species does not seem to grow in dense tufts, like mine.

I have attached a photo of the fruit bodies and also a microphoto, showing more detail of their structure. 

I wonder if anyone has any ideas as to what they might be?

Thank You,
With Best Wishes,

It looks very like a species of Cladosporium, a very common and rather complex genus. See:

Hello Chris,

Thanks. I will have a look through this paper.

I did consider the genus Cladosporium, but was not sure that they would grow so densely grouped as my sample.

With Best Wishes,

Buen día, por el momento pense en Cladosporium pero esta produce esporas de una celula. Son irregulares pero no es Cladosporium.

Re : Densely Grouped Conidiophores on Phragmites
Does "esta produce esporas de una celula" mean "produces spores with a single cell"? Because Cladosporium conidia can have several septa - compare with:
