Hypoxylon pynaerthii Bres., Ann. Mycol. 9: 275. 1911.

DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO: Prov. Leopoldville, Kimminga, on bark, 22 Apr. 1907, H. Vanderyst (BR-holotype of Hypoxylon pynaerthii).

A loculoascomycete. Ascospores are unicellular, brown, finely warted, thick-walled, 32-38 x 12-15.5 µm, lacking a germination site. Miller (1961) mentioned that this fungus has "the appearance of a very large-spored H. serpens." This was followed by Dennis (1963) who also accepted this fungus in Hypoxylon.
