anamorph on Pistacia-leaves in Portugal
Lothar Krieglsteiner, 14-05-2019 18:24

9.4.19, near Aljezur (west Coast).


The fungus was very common there and I also found it elsewhere.


The conidia were about 3,5 µm in diameter.


Who knows such a fungus?


Best regards, Lothar

Re : anamorph on Pistacia-leaves in Portugal
Hello Lothar,

I cannot be certain from your photographs, but I think your fungus on Pistacia might be Dichlaena lentisci Durieu & Mont. It was originally descrtibed from Algeria and is only rarely reported. According to Malloch & Cain (https://www.nrcresearchpress.com/doi/abs/10.1139/b72-335) it has an Aspergillus anamorph. If you find more and can send it to me I believe I can get it into culture and arranged to have it sequenced.

Check out the illustration on its MycoBank page. It must be from the original 1849 paper.

Re : anamorph on Pistacia-leaves in Portugal

Hello David


thank you very much for your answer and your suggestion. Yes, Dichlaena lentisci looks very similar - as far as I see in the small illustration on mycobank.


Unfortunately, I have no access to the paper you showed me with your other link (your paper).


I am back home since some weeks, and I only can send dried material. If you are interested in this, pleas tell me. I will go to the Algarve again, in future, and then I will try to find more.


Best regards and thanks, again,


Lothar

Hello Martin,


thank you very much for the paper - I received it well.


@David:


I will re-examine my material in the next days and will write again.


Thanks again, and best regards,


Lothar

Hello Lothar,

It would probably be possible to obtain a culture from the dried material. I think it is quite resistant to drying.

I have four pictures of this fungus taken long ago that I put on a web page at http://website.nbm-mnb.ca/mycologywebpages/NaturalHistoryOfFungi/Eurotiales.html. The pictures are not very good, but they might help confirm your collection.

Re : anamorph on Pistacia-leaves in Portugal

Hello David and other readers,


today I re-examined the specimen.


First I mounted with Cotton Blue. No circular band seen, nothing else more.


Then I mounted in Carbol Fuchsine. No circular band. In my second attempt I found asci - this was great. So - the fungus should be related to Dichlaena lentisci.


But - although I have a lot of fantasy - I was not able to see a pale band on the spores.


What do you think?


If I should send you a specimen - to what address?


Best regards, Lothar

Re : anamorph on Pistacia-leaves in Portugal
Hello Lothar,

Good photos! Now we see asci. Promising.

If you can send me some material I will attempt to grow it in culture. If the ascomata are not too old the ascospores should still be viable. Germination will reveal if there is a germ slit. If there is one, the spores should open like a clam when they germinate.

My address is:
