Assessment Notes

Taxonomic notes

The genus Sympodiella, with the type species S. acicola Kendrick, was established in 1958. Sympodiella acicola features conidiophores macronematous, mononematous, solitary, flexuous, geniculate, dark brown; conidiogenous cells solitary, cylindrical and conidia cylindrical with truncate ends, hyaline, smooth (Kendrick, 1958).


Why suggested for a Global Red List Assessment?

The species has been found mainly in Europe, in tropical regions, so far there are no records. This fact shows the importance of studying conidial fungi in several parts of the continents, to understand the behavior, distribution and diversity of the group, and thus be able to propose conservation actions.
