Characterized by dark conidiophores bearing conidia through a pore at several points along their length. The conidia are dark brown, more or less egg-shaped to cylindrical, and divided into several cells by transverse and longitudinal walls. Occurring in soil and dead or dying plants.
Classification: Pleosporaceae (Pleosporales). Holomorph: Although no teleomorphs in the Pleosporaceae have been linked to species of Ulocladium, Dr. Lee Bonar, a pioneering California mycologist, published evidence that Lasiobotrys affinis, a member of the Venturiaceae (Pleosporales) produced a Ulocladium anamorph in culture (Bonar, 1928). He had made this observation on several occasions and published excellent illustrations. His evidence seems credible and should be examined further. Ref: Ellis 1971, 1976; Simmons 1967
