Torrubiella = teleomorph
Gibellula = anamorph
Granulomanus = synanamorph

which of these ought be applied to these “araneogenous” fungi, I’m not sure, but I believe it may be determined on a species by species basis.

Comment 2nd image

Danny, I think there may be two(mixed) images from the results so far. The 2nd image may be your ID? If you agree I will load it seperately
