A new species of blastobotrys: Blastobotrys navarrensis sp. nov. (Hyphomycetes)

  • Begoña Sesma

A new species of Blastobotrys Klopotek (1, 2, 4, 5) has been recovered from white pepper. It appears to be sufficiently distinct from B. nivea v. Klopotek. (5), B. proliferas Marvanová, and B. aristata Marvanová (2), to be described as a new species under the name of Blastobotrys navarrensis. Both morphological as well as physiological characteristics were taken in account to differentiate the new species from Blastobotrys species known up to date.
