Eudarluca carisis (Fr.) O. Eriksson, Botanisker Notiser 119: 33. 1966.

 Description: The ascostromata and pycnidia are superficial, botryose. Ascostromata may be either unilocular single bodies or at the extreme they may be locules enclosed in a very prominent elongated stromata. Asci measure 105-125 × 8-9 μm. The ascospores are fusoid, colourless, may become very pale brown with age, 1-septate, often distinctly curved with the lower cell narrowing to more or less a pointed end, measure 17-27 × 3.5-5.5 μm, with mucilaginous apical caps at each end. Apart from growing inside a common stroma as locules along with ascostroma, the Sphaerellopsis pycnidial anamorph can develop separately in botryose stromata similar structure to ascostromata. Conidiomata locules separate in a stroma or associated with developing ascomatal locules in a common stroma. Conidiophores absent. Conidiogenous cells colourless, doliiform, smooth, enterblastic, phialidic, determinate, simple, arising from the innermost layer of cells lining the pycnidial cavity. Conidia 1-septate smooth guttulate, 15-17.5 × 2.5-4 μm with a small mucilaginous appendages at each end.
