Conidia holoblastic, hyaline, guttulate, smooth, thick-walled, ellipsoid, aseptate, slightly curved, frequently slightly narrow at the middle, with obtuse apex; base tapering to flat protruding scar, (15–)17–19(–23) × (6.5–)7–8(–8.5) µm; on MEA, (14–)16–19(–22) × (6–)7–9(–11) µm. Ascospore germination: Ascospores germinate from the apical cell, with primary

Selleck PU-H71 germ tubes forming near the apex; secondary germ tubes form later from the second cell, remaining hyaline; cell wall becoming slightly thicker, but not constricted at the septum, showing no distortion. Culture characteristics: Characteristics on MEA, PDA and OA of all three species of Pseudoplagiostoma are compared in Table 2 and Figs. 7, 8. Fig. 7 Pseudoplagiostoma spp. in culture after 15 d. a–c.

Species haec a Ps. eucalypti et Ps. variabili differt conidiomatibus (265–)285–300(–330) µm latis et (200–)220–250(–270) µm altis et conidiis maturitate brunneis in agaro Selleck JPH203 extracto malti, (15–)17–20(–23) × (6–)7–8(–9) µm. Leaf spots amphigenous, subcircular to irregular, medium brown. Ascomata not observed. On PNA dark brown conidiomata appeared after 15 d in the dark; conidiomata acervular to pycnidial, with pale grey masses of conidia, subglobose to broadly ovoid, subcuticular to epidermal, separate, consisting of 3–5 layers of dark brown textura angularis, (265–)285–300(–330) µm wide, (200–)220–250(–270) µm high; central opening, (90–)110–120(–140) µm wide, wall 20–30 µm thick. Conidiophores absent.
