Hypoxylon cadigensis Yates, Philipp. J. Sci. 12: 378. 1917.

PHILIPPINES: Luzon, 12.1916, Yates, H.S., wood (K, TYPE of H. cadigensis).

A penzigioid Xylaria. Rogers et al. (1987) reported that the type of this fungus has strongly inequilateral ascospores with acute ends. It is probably a member of the Xylaria polymorpha complex. A specimen [GAM 4863 ex Philipp. Bu. Sci. 25715] was labeled by J. H. Miller as the type, who considered it to be either X. anisopleura (Mont.) Fr. or X. schweinitzii Berk. & M. A. Curtis. Miller's specimen, which does not have acute ends on the ascospore, is X. anisopleura and is different from the type of H. cadigensis at K.
