Taxonomical identification: Podospora curvispora

Similar: IBB-18

First publication: Shumilovskikh, L.S., Seeliger, M., Feuser, S., Novenko, E., Schlütz, F., Pint, A., Pirson, F. and Brückner, H. (2016) The harbour of Elaia: A palynological archive for human environmental interactions during the last 7500 years. Quaternary Science Reviews 149, 167–187

Description: The ascospores of Podospora curvispora are dark-brown 11–13 (17) × 8–10 µm, strongly curved, concave on one side and convex on the other, with an apical germ pore of 1 mm in diameter (Mirza and Cain, 1969). In contrast, morphologically similar ascospores of Podospora selenospora have a germ pore on the convex side of the spore (Stchigel et al., 2002). Shumilovskikh et al. (2015) reported about the similarity of Podospora curvispora to NPP type IBB-18 (Montoya et al., 2010).
