 Remarks:The shape of the ascospores in H. sepipigmentum is similar to that of H. fuhreri G.J.D. Smith, K.D. Hyde & Whalley (Smith et al. 1999, Figs. 7-8), which was described originally from Australia. In addition, the size of the ascospores is rather comparable in these two species, and a sepia color is mentioned in the list of KOH-extractable pigments (the others listed are umber and pale fulvous). However, the stromata of H. fuhreri are olivaceous and have orange red granules present.
In having pale sepia KOH-extractable pigments and small patch-like and irregular stromata (cf. Miller 1961, Fig. 19), H. sepipigmentum is similar to Hypoxylon dieckmannii Theiss., but has larger ascospores and perispore dehiscent in 10% KOH. H. dieckmannii was reported from Brazil, French Guiana, Mexico and Louisiana (Ju & Rogers 1996).
