CIFOR–ICRAF publishes over 750 publications every year on agroforestry, forests and climate change, landscape restoration, rights, forest policy and much more – in multiple languages.

CIFOR–ICRAF addresses local challenges and opportunities while providing solutions to global problems for forests, landscapes, people and the planet.

We deliver actionable evidence and solutions to transform how land is used and how food is produced: conserving and restoring ecosystems, responding to the global climate, malnutrition, biodiversity and desertification crises. In short, improving people’s lives.

Kwanghwana miscanthi Karun., C.H.Kuo & K.D.Hyde, gen. et sp. nov. (Phaeosphaeriaceae, Pleosporales) on Miscanthus floridulus (Labill.) Warb. ex K.Schum. & Lauterb. (Poaceae)

We are studying microfungi growing on Poaceae hosts in different geographical regions and in this study we introduce Kwanghwana miscanthi Karun., C.H.Kuo & K.D.Hyde, gen. et sp. nov., based on phylogenetic analyses of DNA sequences of four loci used in combination (three ribosomal (LSU, SSU and ITS) and one protein coding region (TEF1-α)) and on morphological characters. This new genus, including a single species isolated from Miscanthus floridulus (Labill.) Warb. ex K.Schum. & Lauterb., is molecularly distinct from closely related genera, Neostagonosporella C.L.Yang, X.L.Xu & K.D.Hyde, Setophoma Gruyter, Aveskamp & Verkley and Edenia M.C.González, A.L.Anaya, Glenn, Saucedo & Hanlin. Kwanghwana miscanthi Karun., C.H.Kuo & K.D.Hyde, sp. nov., also differs from Neostagonosporella and Setophoma by having subglobose ascomata, irregularly thickened peridium, cellular, septate and branched pseudoparaphyses, and fusiform, broadly fusoid, 3-septate ascospores. © Publications scientifiques du Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle, Paris.
