Abstract: A new species of Chaetopsina is described and illustrated from a collection in French Guiana. Based on morphological divergences of both sexual and asexual morphs from known Chaetopsina species as well as phylogenetic analyses of ITS and LSU sequences, C. pnagiana is proposed as new species. A dichotomous key to holomorphic species of Chaetopsina is provided

An inventorial survey of fungi of Saül (French Guiana), initiated in 2018 by the Parc National Amazonien de Guyane (PNAG), lead to the discovery of several new species of Chaetopsina Rambelli (Lechat & Fournier, 2019c), Clonostachys Corda (Lechat & Fournier, 2018; Lechat et al., 2019), Ijuhya Starbäck (Lechat & Fournier, 2019b) and Pleiocarpon L. Lombard & D. Aiello (Lechat & Fournier, 2019a) […]
