THE various regions of Central Africa are a territory which has not been studied mycologically in any detail. It is therefore not surprising that, in a second paper on tropical fungi, G. B. Hansford (Trans. Linn, Soc. Lond., 159, pt. 1, pp. 21 ; 1947), in describing thirty-four species, includes no less than twenty -eight new ones. The genus Meliola is well represented with eight new species, and it has been found necessary to create two new genera, Phragmodiscus and Dictyoasterina, to accommodate some of the new findings. The collections are from Uganda, the Belgian Congo and Sierra Leone.
