Abstract

Two species of Podospora (P. appendiculata and P. fimiseda) with thick-walled, coriaceous perithecia are frequently found in New Zealand. A third similar species, P. perplexans, has been recorded only once. A key and descriptions of the species are provided together with cultural details, dung preferences and geographic distributions. A Cladorrhinum anamorph for P. fimiseda is reported for the first time. The perithecium development of P. fimiseda is described and comparisons are made with the centrum development of P. vesticola and P. tetraspora. This current work supports the view that P. appendiculata and P. fimiseda are closely related to the genus Cercophora.
