Abstract: Clonostachys pilosella and C. pnagiana are described and illustrated as new species, based on collections from Saül in French Guiana. The asexual morphs of these fungi were obtained in culture and cultures were sequenced. The two new species are placed in Clonostachys, based on ascomata not changing colour in 3% KOH or lactic acid, clonostachys-like asexual morphs and phylogenetic comparison of LSU sequences with 18 known Clonostachys species

In the continuity of our inventorial survey of fungi in Saül in French Guiana carried out in the context of the ABC project initiated by the Parc National Amazonien de Guyane (Gardiennet et al., 2019, Lechat & Fournier, 2018; 2019a; 2019b; 2019c; Lechat et al., 2019), two unknown bionectriaceous species were collected […]
