Xylaria mesenterica (Möller) M. Stadler, Laessøe & J. Fourn.

Material studied. MEXICO - Quintana Roo • J.I. de la Fuente 68 ( ITCV); Jaguactal; 18°14′N, 088°57′W; alt. 132 m; 12 Oct. 2014 GoogleMaps .

Habit and habitat. Caespitose on fallen logs in evergreen tropical forest.

Identification. This species can be recognized by the globose and gelatinose stroma with greyish hues and the dark ellipsoid ascospores of 11–14 × 5–6 µm. Our material agrees with the description provided by San Martín and Lavín (1997) described for Entonaema pallidum G.W. Martin. This species differs from similar species, such as E. globosum R. Heim. and E. liquescens Möller , by the greyish colour of the stromata. Entonaema pallidum was transferred to Xylaria mesenterica based on molecular and morphological evidence ( Stadler et al. 2008).
