Ascomycota Macrofungi New to Romania

Open access


The paper gives a new contribution to the knowledge of Ascomycota macrofungi from Romania. The paper presents three Ascomycota species, Peziza phyllogena Cooke, Scutellinia superba (Velen.) Le Gal and Peroneutypa scoparia (Schwein.) Carmaran & A.I. Romero, reported for the first time in Romania. The species were uncovered and identified during a larger research regarding the diversity and distribution of macrofungi in the areas near Bucharest, Romania. Macro- and micro morphological descriptions, comments and illustrations of the species are presented.
