Germplasm of xylariales fungal diversity of Gujarat, India

Title variants
Languages of publication
The present paper deals with the eleven species germplasm of Xylariales collected from forest of Gujarat, India. An intensive survey in Gujarat was carried out from 2007–2015. From the total collection 11 xylariaceous fungi were identified in which six belong to daldinia four belong to xylaria and one belong to hypoxylon of Xylariaceae. Daldinia bambusicola Y.-M. Ju, J. D. Rogers, & San Martín, Daldinia loculata (Lév.) Sacc., Daldinia petriniae Y.-M. Ju, J. D. Rogers, & San Martín, are new records to Gujarat. Although some of these species have been previously recorded, present collections showed remarkable morphological differences to the previously described ones.
