Sporormia fimetaria?
Yulia Lytvynenko, 12-10-2019 16:25
Dear friends.
I have one sample of the Sporormia with 16-spores ascospores on deer dung from Ukraine. Asci 51-68 × 11-12.5 ?m, ascospores 36.4-41.9 × 2.8-3.4 ?m.
This should be Sporormia fimetaria de Not. s. str. Since Sporomia fimetaria de Not. sensu Ahmed & Cain is characterized by larger sizes of ascospores and asci. Or is it a completely different species?
I got acquainted with Richardson's arguments on this subject (M. J. Richardson, 1999), but they left more questions than answers.
Or, maybe, S. fimelaria could be regarded as a taxon with very variable ascus and spore sizes?
I also wanted to clarify if anyone has a description of Sporormia nepalensis Udagawa & Y. Sugiy.? Or perhaps a copy of this work: Udagawa S., Sugiyama Y. (1982). New records and new species of ascomycetous microfungi from Nepal. A preliminary report on the expedition of 1980. – Rep. Cryptog. Study Nepal. March 1982 (Miscell. Publ. Nat. Sci. Mus., Tokyo): 11-46.
Kindly regards, Yulia

Re : Sporormia fimetaria?
Hello Yulia.

Indeed, I think this species is quite variable; I give you what I have as comparison: RS Khan & RF Cain speaks in their article (1978) of asci with 16 or 20 spores and gives 50-57 (60) X 3,5-4,5 (5, 5) ?m for measurements. Most recent (2009) J.Chang & Y.Wang gives for spores 41-53 x 3-5 ?m. (see copies). I'm sorry for the items you're asking for, I do not have them, but I'm interested too.

Hi Yulia,
no idea where to find the docs you requested but Cybertruffle should be one of the first sites to look for literature.
You might check:

Re : Sporormia fimetaria?
Dear Michel!
Thanks for your comment and copies. If I get a copy of the Udagawa & Sugiyama article, I will forward it to you.

Re : Sporormia fimetaria?
Dear Marcel!
Thanks for the info and link! From it, I found data on some literary sources that I did not know about before.

Re : Sporormia fimetaria?
Dear Peter.
Thanks for the link! I read the comments there with interest.
Regarding Khan&Cain's article. I have their work "The genera Sporormiella et Sporormia in east Africa". But this publication was in 1979. Does this mean that there was another article published in 1978?
