Observation 163920: Gonatobotrys simplex Corda
When: 2014-04-22
Who: Jonathan M
No herbarium specimen

Notes: This fungus is apparently a parasite of other hyphomycetes, and while there was alternaria nearby i can’t confirm parasitism,

It is easily identified by behing a single stalk with many vesicule bearing fairly large conidia, to my knowledge only another genera do such structure and is called Gonatobotryum, the later is distinguished by conidia behing in chain and the structure behing dark

on Euonymus hamiltonianus decaying seed pods, possibly parasiting alternaria

Species Lists


in situ, this picture is bad but the hyaline conidia reflect light and the whole fungus is minute
vesicules and some with conidia
immature vesicules with immature conidia
