Abstract

The Helicosporae are members of the form-order Moniales and encompass all those fungi that bear conidia coiled spirally in two or three dimensions. With the exception of the genera Helicoceras (3) and Drepanoconis (2) (not represented in this area), they are saprobic. These saprobic members form colonies that range from extensive, loose, arachnoid mats to small pulvinate masses scattered over the substrate. Twenty-six species distributed through seven genera are recognized as occurring in the north central United States.
