Geejayessia montana (Hypocreales, Nectriaceae), a new species from French Alps and Spain
20 Nov 2017 - By Lechat C., Fournier J.
Abstract: Geejayessia montana sp. nov. is described and illustrated, based on two collections from high elevation in French Alps and Asturias in Spain. The placement of the new species in Geejayessia is supported by morphological characters of both sexual and asexual morphs as well as analysis of ITS sequences. Furthermore, the new combination Geejayessia hispanica (Lechat & Priou) Lechat & J. Fourn. comb. nov. is proposed. An updated key to the known species of Geejayessia is presented
