Identification key to the Diplopodomyces  species

1. Perithecium bearing one ligula-like protuberance..................................................................... ........................................................... D. liguliphorus Santam., Enghoff & Reboleira  sp. nov.

− Perithecium without protuberances .................................................................................................. 2

2. Only one antheridium borne on the primary appendage .................................................................. 3

− Two or more functional antheridia on the primary appendage ......................................................... 4

3. Appendage bearing a single antheridium on the second cell; antheridium without supporting cell; on Lusitanipus Mauriès, 1978  and Cyphocallipus Verhoeff, 1909  ( Callipodida  ) and Guadarramosoma Gilgado, Ledesma, Enghoff & Mauriès, 2017 ( Chordeumatida  ) ..................................................... D. lusitanipodos Santam., Enghoff & Reboleira 

− Appendage bearing a single antheridium on the first cell. Antheridium with supporting cell. On Serboiulus  ( Julida  ) .......................................... D. coronatus Santam., Enghoff & Reboleira  sp. nov.

4. Appendage consisting of five superposed cells. Two antheridia on the second cell. These antheridia and the distal part of the appendage oriented as the axes of a regular tetrahedron. On Callipus  ( Callipodida  ) ............................................................... D. callipodos W.Rossi & Balazuc ex W.Rossi 

− Appendage consisting of more than seven cells. Usually more than two functional antheridia; when only two, not positioned together on the second cell of the appendage ........................................... 5

5. Dimorphic.Primaryappendagestronglybentlaterally,unbranchedorwithfewinconspicuousbranches on the distal part. On Lusitanipus  ( Callipodida  ) ......... ...... D. veneris Santam., Enghoff & Reboleira
