  • Members of Sporormiaceae are saprobes on plant debris, wood, soil and dung and are sometimes endophytes. In this study, a saprobic species was collected from decaying grass in China. Maximum-parsimony, maximum-likelihood and Bayesian Inference analyses of combined ITS, LSU, SSU, TEF1-α and RPB2 sequence data clarified the phylogenetic affinity in Sparticola. The isolate was confirmed as a new species based on morphological and phylogenetic analyses. Sparticola muriformis sp. nov. is distinguished from other taxa in Sporormiaceae by having muriform ascospores
