Myrothecium


The conidiophores are united together to form fruiting structures (sporodochia) which are usually flat but may be on a stalk. The spores (conidia) are borne from the tips of the long phialides which are in turn borne on densely branched and brush-like conidiophores. The mass of dark green conidia collect in large green to blackish wet drops. In soil and decaying plant debris.

Classification: Hypocreales (Hypocreomycetidae), but its family placement is still unclear. Holomorphs: unknown. Ref: Domsch et al., 1980; Tulloch 1972
