Abstract

Octospora kilimanjarensis sp. nov. is described from a rain forest of the Kilimanjaro, Tanzania. The taxonomy is discussed and Octospora kilimanjarensis is placed in these c­ tion Neottiellae Caillet et Moyene of the bryophilous genus Octospora Hedwig. The new species is compared with other four related species of the section, Octospora albocincta (Berk, et Curt. ap. Berk.) Caillet et Moyne, Octospora rutilans (Fr.) Dennis et Itzerott, Octospora vivida (Nylander) Dennis et Itzerott and Octospora aplanodictyon (Kobayasi) J. Moravec based on Aleuria aplanodictyon Kobayasi. The latter is here reported for the first time from Central Europe (Czech Republic). Features of the new species are illustrated by line drawings and SEM photomicrographs. Ascospore ornamentation of the other species treated here has also been studied and line drawings of their ascospores accompany the paper.
