Notes. Dictyocheirospora musae  is morphologically similar to Di. hydei  in having non-complanate, cylindrical conidia with globose to subglobose appendages. However, Dictyocheirospora musae  differs in having appendages in the middle cells while Di. hydei  has appendages on the basal cells ( Photita et al. 2002, Prasher and Verma 2015).
