GOMEZ-REYES, Víctor Manuel; GOMEZ-PERALTA, Marlene  e  GUEVARA GUERRERO, Gonzalo. New record and distribution of Delastria rosea (Pezizales: Incertae sedis) in Mexico. Act. Bot. Mex [online]. 2017, n.119, pp.139-144. ISSN 2448-7589.

Background and Aims:

Delastria rosea is a hypogeous fungus characterized by its rose gleba and globose ascospores with reticulated ornamentation. Its previously known distribution ranges from Northern Africa, Southern Europe to California in the United States of America. The aim of this study is to record D. rosea for the Mexican mycobiota.


The material was collected following the recommendations for the study of hypogeous fungi. It was sampled in a cloud forest in the state of Michoacán, Mexico.

Key results:

Delastria rosea is described for the Mexican mycobiota and similarities and differences between the European and North American descriptions are discussed.


We consider that the reviewed specimens correspond to Delastria rosea, in spite of the differences presented with the European and North American descriptions.
