Dwiroopa, anamorph gen. nov. and Dwiroopa ramya anamorph sp. nov. are proposed to accommodate a eustromatic fungus collected on dead twigs from forests of Western Ghats in Agumbe, Karnataka State. The fungus produces stromata within which two types, the α- and β-conidia are produced. Both are solitary, one-celled, gangliar and brown coloured but the α-conidia are clearly larger, darker and have very characteristic striations on the surface, absent in the β-conidia. In addition, small, one-celled, allantoid, phialoconidia may be produced in some of the conidiomata. The present fungus is compared with the closely allied Coelomycete genusHarknessia Cooke.
