During a mycological excursion to the Pondoland region of South Africa in
2008, six interesting anamorphic fungi with appendage-bearing conidia were isolated.
They are Bartalinia pondoensis, Crucellisporium umtamvunae, and Mycohypallage
margaretae, all of which are new to science, Mycohypallage congesta with a new
observation of gelatinous basal appendage, Mycotribulus mirabilis on a new host plant,
Apodytes, and Chaetospermum camelliae. Morphological characters are described
and notes provided. The teleomorphic affinity of C. umtamvunae to the Helotiales is
proposed based on DNA sequence data.
