Bryophilous Fungi

Phylogeny of ascomycetes follows the groundwork set by Stenroos et al. (2010).

Search for species by a list of host liverworts or host mosses

  • Notes:
  • The species listed are those reported from the British Isles. Taxa without links need photographs. Some have not been seen in many decades, or ever in fresh material.
  • Square brackets [ ] indicate taxa observed but not supported by a voucher specimen.
  • Round brackets ( ) indicate taxa previously incorrectly recorded in the British Isles and therefore not accepted on the checklist.
  • Asterisks * indicate links to external websites, images on which may not be of material from the British Isles but serve as examples.
