Abstract

We are studying seed and fruit-borne fungi in Thailand and in this paper report on species of Tainosphaeria, Thozetella and Chaetosphaeria from Fabaceae seed pods and decorticated wood, collected in Chiang Mai and Phang-nga provinces. Phylogenetic analysis of combined LSU, ITS and TUB sequence data provides evidence for new species of Thozetella and Chaetosphaeria. These new taxa are introduced and compared with closely related species in these genera. We provide a morphological and illustrated account of Chaetosphaeria panamensis isolated from Pinus twigs as a first record for Thailand.
