Based on the phylogenetic result together with the morphological characters (slightly papillate ostiole and Alternaria-like asexual morph) we refer Clathrospora to Pleosporaceae.
Ostiole width ranged between 5.9 mm (south-east) and 12.7 mm (north-west) (Table 1) and it was narrower or similar than values reported in other studies (Aksoy et al., 2003; Messaoudi and Boughida, 2008) and the smaller the ostiole width is, the better is the fruit stored and preserved from infectious agent (Michailides et al., 2008).
The ascospores were extruded in creamy white colored masses deposited around the ostiole. The anatomical and morphological characteristics, as well as the size of the perithecia and ascospores that it contained, coincided with those described for Neonectria discophora (Mont.) Mantiri & Samuels [=Nectria mammoidea W.
Terminal hairs surrounding the ostiole are numerous, long, septate thick walled, straight or contorted, up to 1.7 mm long, 3.7-4.2 [micro]m in diameter, walls 0.60-1.12 [micro]m thick, dark smoky in color, more or less densely encrusted, tips curved to circinate.
