effuse, grayish brown, with mycclium interna! in the substrate tissue, composed of septate, branched, hyaline to subhyaline, smooth hyphae. Conidiophores macronematous, mononematous, erect, straight to flexuous, septate, branched, pale brown at the base, subhyaline to hyaline towards the tip, smooth, with a sharply curved, hook-like, thick-walled, dark brown, branch in the middle. Conidiogenous cells monophialidic, discrete, sometimes solitary, mostly in verticils below the hook-like curved branch, ampulliform to lageniform, smooth, w'ith or without a collarette. Conidia endogenous, hyaline, allantoid, smooth, rounded at both ends, aseptate, produced in a slimy mass at the tip of the phialide.

^-CEEVEESUBRAMANIOMYCES, a NEW DEMATIACEOUS FROM INDIA 25 (Ellis, 1971; Carmicheal et ai, 1980;

Hawksworth et al., 1995). In


typified by

C. kakombensis

Pirozynski, the row of phialides on the fertile zone of setiform conidiophore is covered by a palisade of sterile, shield-like tissue (Pirozynski 1968; Bhat and Kendrick 1993).

In Kionochaeta, typified by

K. ramifera

(Matsushima) Kirk and Sutton (Kirk and Sutton, 1985), the setiform, branched, conidiophores are fertile mostly in the central part with penicillately arranged bunches of phialides. In


typified by Z. novae-zelandiae Hughes and Kendrick the conidiophores bear verticils of sessile phialides in the central 3-4 septa (Hughes and Kendrick, 1965). In none of these, however, the hook-like, curved, dark -coloured, stiff branch developing from the septa above the whorl of conidiogenous cells is present, as in Ceeveesubramaniomyces.
