Rosellinia etrusca



Rosellinia etrusca Fabre.

This rare species is only known from the type collection on Lonicera etrusca (Fabre, 1878; Petrini, 1993; Petrini et al., 1989). No subiculum is present, but slimy caps at the ends of ascospores suggest a Rosellinia. It is separated from related species by smaller ascospores 14-17 x 5.4-7.2Ám. Collecting fresh material of L. etrusca would be an opportunity to check its real affinities with Rosellinia as currently accepted.
