A new species of Lophiotrema from wild fruit in Hong Kong
Lophiotremapsychotrii spec. nov. is described and illustrated based on specimens occurring on Psychotria asiatica and Rhodomyrtus tomentosa fruits in Hong Kong. This species is characterized by small, hyaline, guttulate, uniseptate, fusiform ascospores bearing a narrow mucilaginous sheath, which is narrow in the middle and drawn out at both ends to form pad-like appendages. A synoptic table and key to Lophiotrema species is provided.
