Coryne  sp.

(fig. 2 K)

Material studied. Gettysburg, stn 5: scarce material, several shoots on caulus of Zonaria tournefortii  , DBUA 1509.01.

Remarks. Ramification up to first order; perisarc annulated throughout; stenotele length ca. 21 µm. The absence of fertile specimens makes accurate identification of this material impossible, but it shares morphological similarities with Coryne pusilla Gaertner, 1774  . This biological material clearly corresponds to a species distinct from the remnant herein presented, representing the first record of this Corynidae  species in the Gorringe Bank.
