A representative of the previously described species known as Neocosmospora boninensis was collected from forest soil from the Bonin Islands (=Ogasawara Islands) in Japan in 1983 (Udagawa et al., 1989).  This heterothallic member of the Fusarium solani species complex (FSSC) produces light red to light brown perithecia.  The sequenced isolate of N. boninensis is able to cause disease on pea and carries an entire PEP cluster postulated to be involved in conferring pathogenicity for garden pea (Temporini and VanEtten, 2004).
