Pseudovalsa (?) with conspicuous polar caps
Enrique Rubio, 22-05-2012 14:02
Enrique RubioHi to all
I need you help with this Pseudovalsa (?) that grew on, could de, Acer branches. The perithecia are single or in reduced groups under the bark and they open by inconspicuous ostioles.
Ascospores are pseudoseptate without polar germ pores but they have well visible polar caps. Asci with (4)-6-7-8 ascospores. Some spores are bigger or aberrant.
This species fits well with Munk's description of Pseudovalsa cf. umbonata (Danish Pyrenomycetes: 203).
What do you think?
Many thanks in advance
Enrique

Re : Pseudovalsa (?) with conspicuous polar caps
Hola Enrique,
I don't know your fungus but I think it is not Pseudovalsa umbonata which occurs on oak, has a well-defined stroma surrounded by a black wall and a conspicuous blackish disc.
Ascospores of P. umbonata are indeed similar to yours in dimensions but are more distinctly distoseptate and they have more narrowly rounded ends with a hyaline tip and lack appendages.
Walter would be more helpful than me to find a name.
Cheers,
Jacques

Re : Pseudovalsa (?) with conspicuous polar caps
Thanks, Jacques. As you say my fungus is clearly not P. umbonata

I have seen close to the fruit bodys pycnidia of the Stegonsporium (?) conidial state?

Re : Pseudovalsa (?) with conspicuous polar caps
Enrique,
I think you should find an answer in the fantastic paper by Voglmayr & Jaklitsch (2008)
Prosthecium species with Stegonsprium anamorphs on Acer, Mycological Research 112: 885-905. Tell me if you don't have it.
Good luck!
Jacques

Re : Pseudovalsa (?) with conspicuous polar caps
Thank you Jacques. Please, send me this paper that I need.
Prosthecium seems to be a good solution for my fungus. Some ascospores (< 50%) have a longitudinal distosepta and many of them are abnormal or aborted.
Prosthecium pyriforme is a good answer?

After read Voglmayr & Jaklitsch (2008) paper I think my fungus could be Prosthecium pyriforme
