Abstract:The coelomycete Acaroconium punctiforme gen. sp. nov. is described from four members of the lichen-forming family Acarosporaceae, three species of Acarospora and Sarcogyne regularis. The new fungus is characterized by pycnidial conidiomata with a distinct ostiolar collar, enteroblastic conidiogenesis, and the production of simple brown conidia. The separation of the fungus from other somewhat similar pycnidial fungi growing on lichens and plant material is discussed.
