Wawea Fruticulosa, a New Genus and Species from the Southern Hemisphere

  • Aino Henssen (a1) and G. Kantvilas (a2)

Abstract

The monotypic genus Wawea gen. nov. is described as a second genus in the family Arctomiaceae. The single species, Wawea fruticulosa sp. nov., is characterized by its fruticose habit, rugose and corticate lobes, secondarily multidivided and coalescing apothecia, two-celled spores, and by the unique initial stage of ascocarp ontogeny which includes simultaneous development of ascogonia as well as short-celled, branched conldiophores producing conidia. W. fruticulosa is widespread in Tasmania and is known also from New Zealand with single collections from the North and South Island. A new pyrenomyceteRhynchomeliola lichenicola sp. nov., parasymbiotic on Wawea fruticulosa, is also described.
