Embellisia thlaspis is described as a new species from the roots of the cruciferThlaspi caerulescens. The host plant was growing in soil in an area of disused zinc and lead mines where high levels of heavy metals have been recorded. Examining this novel fungus using SEM, the detailed structure of the conidiogenous loci confirms earlier observations of this genus.
