 Scientific Name: Rhexocercosporidium panacis

Rhexocercosporidium panacis Reeleder, Mycologia 99(1): 96 2007.

 Description: Colonies growing very slowly on Potato Dextrose Agar at 25℃, white initially and becoming grayish-brown or pale gray in aged, superficial, villose, often forming pale white zonation, reverse black or blackish-brown. Mycelium partly immersed, composed of branched, smooth, septate, thin-walled, hyaline hyphae, 3 - 4 μm wide. Conidiophores erect, branched, smooth, thin-walled, easily rhexolytic, hyaline, 42 - 115 × 2 – 4 μm. Conidia ellipsoidal, hyaline, lateral side slightly curverd or indented, bearing 1 - 3 scars, 0 – 3-septate, smooth, catenulate, (6.5-)10 – 25(-38) × 2.8 - 4.5 μm.

 Note: Rhexocercosporidium is characterized by slender and branched conidiophores, which easily rhexolytic and becoming conidia directly. The seceded conidia bore 2-3 apical scars. Morphologically the conidia of R. panacis isolated from Taiwan resembled to the isolate described by Reeleder(2007), but with less septa, and also shorter.
