The genus Subulispora was erected by Tubaki, in 1971, with description type-species of the S. procurvata. Conidiogenous cells produce up to 30 flat scars, apical, terminal, integrated, sympodial development, light brown. Conidiophores erect, straight or curved, solitary, septate, brown. Conidia subuliform, hyaline; base abruptly truncate, with or without straight scar, smooth, with apical appendice, hyaline (Tubaki; Yokoyama, 1971; Pirozynski, 1972).
The study the ecology and taxonomy of conidial fungi in several environments can assist in expanding the knowledge of the diversity of existing this fungal and found forms of the conservation and use this micro-organisms.
Distribution: in tropical and subtropical climate regions
The genus has 13 species to date. The species has been found in submerged leaves and on decaying and dead leaves, records in India (Rajeshekhar; Kaveriappa, 1992), Mexico (Heredia, 1993), Italy (Lunghini et al., 2013), Australia (Paulus et al., 2007) and others.
Population Trend: Uncertain
Saprobic; Submerged leaves and dead leaves
Although it has records of the species in almost all continents except the Poles, the distribution in Europe and Africa, only one record in both.
In Brazil, there are a great number of registers in Bahia and São Paulo, mainly, there are no occurrences in ecosystems such as mangroves, sand banks and Coastral dunes.
