Two Novel Eupenicillium Species Isolated from Soil in China


Two novel species of Eupenicillium isolated from the soil collected in China are described and illustrated. Eupenicillium polygoniforme is characterized by the lenticular ascospores with polygon edge of equatorial ridges, the convex surface of the ascospores resembling with reticulate anastomosed ribs and striking spinulose. E. zhejiangensis is characterized by the lenticular ascospores with distinct deeply equatorial ridges and anastomosed squamiform ornamentation of the convex surface. The phylogenetic relationship between the two new species and other species in Eupenicillium genus was investigated base on LSU-ITS combined sequences.
