Abstract: Podospora bullata sp. nov. is described and illustrated based on five kangaroo dung collections from Australia. The species is placed in the genus Podospora based on its teleomorph morphology and its ITS sequence from a fertile homothallic axenic culture. Perithecial necks are adorned with prominent simple unswollen filiform flexuous and non-agglutinated greyish hairs. Ascospores are characterized by minute pedicels, lack of caudae and an enveloping frothy gelatinous material with bubble-like structures both in the amorphous gel and attached to the ascospore dark cell. No anamorph was observed
