Echria macrotheca PSN4 Minimal Draft

Echria belongs to the family Schizotheciaceae. Echria macrotheca is a coprophilous species with a global distribution. It is characterized by a long-pointed tuft of agglutinated rigid hairs on the ascomata. PSN4 has never fruited in culture but its ITS sequence is identical to the one published for Echria macrotheca. The sequenced strain of Echria macrotheca PSN4 was isolated from an ascus found on a leaf of a potted Mentha plant purchased at Quai de la Megisserie in Paris, France.
