Taeniolella phaeophysciae D.Hawksw.

Basidiomycota, Pleosporales (anamorph): forming small, blackened areas of host thallus, with bristle-like, unbranched conidiophores producing brown, thick-walled, mostly 1-septate conidia; a parasite on Phaeophyscia orbicularis, rarely on Physconia distorta; widespread, scattered records but no doubt under-recorded.
