Folia Cryptogamica Estonica <p><em>Folia Cryptogamica Estonica</em> (FCE) is an international journal which welcomes papers on biodiversity, taxonomy and ecology of fungi, lichens, bryophytes and algae from contributors anywhere in the world. Submitted manuscripts must not be published before and not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. All manuscripts should be in English. All submissions are peer-reviewed.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> University of Tartu Press en-US Folia Cryptogamica Estonica 1406-2070 Didymocyrtis epiphyscia (Phaeosphaeriaceae) is new to Kazakhstan and Central Asia <div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p><em>Didymocyrtis epiphyscia</em> s. lat. is reported for the first time for Kazakhstan and Central Asia.

Of these, <em>Tetramelas chloroleucus</em> has not been recorded in Poland since 19<sup>th</sup> century and, similarly to G<em>yalecta russula</em>, has been found for the first time in the Polish part of the Carpathians. <em>Absconditella celata</em> has been discovered in the Polish Western Carpathians. <em>Fellhanera gyrophorica</em> has never been listed before in the Western Carpathians and <em>Epigloea bactrospora</em> in whole Carpathians. Notes on the taxonomy, habitat and worldwide distribution of these species (including maps of their ranges in Europe) are accompanied by photo plates illustrating their morphology and anatomy.</p> </div> </div> </div> Paweł Czarnota Magdalena Tanona Copyright (c) 2020-05-04 2020-05-04 57 21 32 10.12697/fce.2020.57.04 Trimmatostroma commonii, a new lichenicolous hyphomycete inhabiting Graphidaceae hosts <div class="page" title="Page 1"> <div class="layoutArea"> <div class="column"> <p>The new lichenicolous hyphomycete <em>Trimmatostroma commonii</em> is described from Réunion, the USA (Florida) and Vietnam. It strongly resembles the generic type <em>T. salicis</em>, from which it is distinguished by much looser conidiomatal tufts, less septate conidia and the lichenicolous habitat, growing over species of Graphidaceae in the tropics.</p> </div> </div> </div> Paul Diederich Mikhail P.
