On Arachniotus and related genera of the Gymnoascaceae
Fungal strains in the culture collection of the CBS under the generic names Arachniotus and Pseudoarachniotus were studied. The genera Arachniotus (including Pseudoarachniotus) with 6 species, Narasimhella with a single species, and Amauroascus with 7 species are accepted. For Arachniotus glomeratus, Arachniotus striatisporus and Arachniotus lectardii the new generic names Arachnotheca, Byssoascus, and Eleutherascus are proposed. A key is given for the genera of the Gymnoascaceae.
