Laboulbeniales on millipedes: the genera Diplopodomyces and Troglomyces

Research output: Research - peer-reviewJournal article

The genera Diplopodomyces and Troglomyces
(Laboulbeniales, Ascomycota) parasitizing millipedes
(Diplopoda) are reviewed. We describe four
new species: D. lusitanipodos parasitic on Lusitanipus
from Portugal and on Cyphocallipus from Spain, D.
veneris on Lusitanipus from Portugal, T. botryandrus
on Leptoiulus from Italy and T. rossii on Ophyiulus,
Leptoiulus and Typhloiulus from Italy. Diplopodomyces
veneris is a dimorphic species, with different morphotypes
growing on the male copulatory organs and on
the surroundings of the female gonopore respectively.
The type species of both genera also have been
studied, their descriptions are revised and a neotype
for T. manfrediae is designated. New records from
Italy are given for D. callipodos and T. manfrediae.
