Sammanfattning

A novel species of ascomycetes is described from resin of Araucaria humboldtensis on Mont Humboldt in New Caledonia. The fungus is placed in the new genus Resinogalea Rikkinen & A.R. Schmidt, with the species name R. humboldtensis Rikkinen & A.R. Schmidt. It has only been found growing on semi-hardened resin flows on branches of its endemic and endangered conifer host. The morphology and anatomy of the new fungus are compared with those of ecologically similar taxa, including Bruceomyces castoris. The new family Bruceomycetaceae Rikkinen & A.R. Schmidt is described to accommodate Resinogalea and Bruceomyces.
