Rosellinia saccardii



Rosellinia saccardii L. Petrini

This species, described as R. aquila var. byssiseda by Saccardo, is a small-spored representant of the R. aquila complex, differing from R. glabra in having a more developed subiculum (Petrini, 1993). It is based on old material, therefore data regarding ascal apical apparatus and ascospore appendages or slimy sheath are lacking.

It is known from Europe (France, Germany, Italy) on Gleditschia and Robinia (Petrini, 1993). We did not collect it, but fresh material would be welcome.
