The placement of this fungus in the genus and its status as a distinct species are based on the study of its sexual and asexual morphs, colour of colony in culture and phylogenetic comparison of ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 and LSU sequences with those of cosmospora-like fungi having an acremonium-like asexual morph

In the course of a field survey of Ascomycota in the French Alps in August 2019, initiated by, a cosmospora-like species was collected on dead or effete stromata of Hypoxylon fuscum (Pers.) Fr. (Hypoxylaceae, Xylariales) on Alnus alnobetula […]
