A Note on Epicoccum

Abstract

On 27 September, while making isolations from corn stalks collected near Iowa City, a fungus of the genus Epicoccum was isolated from a short section of stalk which had been put into a moisture chamber on September 22. The same fungus has been isolated 3 times from corn stalks since then. Attempts to determine the species led to a realization of the uncertainty concerning the species in this genus and the inadequacy of the descriptions and illustrations. The fungus under discussion was at first determined as Epicoccum neglectum Desm. (Ann. Sci. Nat. Bot. II. 17: 95. 1842); however. Damon (1953) examined material in the Link herbarium and found that E. neglectum Desm. was identical with E. nigrum Link. Thus E. neglectum Desm. was reduced to synonymy and the fungus under discussion is Epicoccum nigrum Link (Handbuch. 3: 430. 1833).
