Assessment Notes

Taxonomic notes

The genus was erected on the type species M. glauca by Persoon (1822). Conidiophores macronematous, mononematous, frequently branched, fertile in the lower part, setose and flexuous in the upper part, brown, clearer at the apices, septate. Conidiogenous cells at the apex of branches or laterally to conidiophores, clear brown, monophialidic, with uncinate conidiogenous loci. Conidia aggregated at the base of the conidiophores, curved, round at the apices with a short setula at each ends, hyaline, 0-septate (Corda, 1837; Réblová; Seifert, 2007).


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

The study of conidial fungi in various ecosystems and biomes, in the country and worldwide, can provide the discovery of many species, so that the diversity of this group can be known and explored both in the ecological field and in other research, such as biotechnology and industry.
