Thielavia coactilis Nicto has been rediscovered developing on dead leaves of Carpinus collected at Fontainebleau and incubated in damp chambers. A detailed description of this ascomycete is provided from pure cultural studies, followed by a discussion of his taxonomic position in the genus Thielavia Zopf. This non- thermotolerant fungus is characterised by its unicellular ellipsoidal brown ascospores of moderate dimensions having a distinctive subapical germ pore and the formation of chlamydospores in the hyaline mycelium. T. kuwaitensis Moustafa proved to be identical to T. coactilis.
