Identification of a mating population, Gibberella nygamai sp. nov., within the Fusarium nygamai anamorph

Mycologia 88(6): 965-969

Identification of a mating population, Gibberella nygamai sp. nov., within the Fusarium nygamai anamorph

Isolates of F. nygamai were mated and produced fertile perithecia of G. nygamai sp. nov., on carrot agar. Female-fertile tester strains were recovered from random ascospore progeny and 2 were identified as more reliable female parents in the detection of other members of this population. The formation of microconidia in short chains and the formation of chlamydospores in anamorph progeny cultures were suitable characters for species identification of F. nygamai.
