Additions to Gliocephalotrichum species (anamorphic Hypocreales) from fruit litter of the medicinal plant Terminalia chebula in the Western Ghats, India
Two species of Gliocephalotrichum were isolated from fallen fruits of the medicinal plant Terminalia chebula collected from the forests of Western Ghats, India. On the basis of morphological characters and ITS1–5.8S–ITS2 sequence similarity, the fungi have been identified as Gliocephalotrichum longibrachium and G. bulbilium. For the former species, this is the first report of its occurrence from India, whereas the latter, showing significant morphological variability, has been known previously from India.
