During a mycological collection of the coelomycetous fungi from Wardha district (MS), India two new species of the form- genus Aplospoella Speg. were collected. These are growing saprophytically on dry stems of Azadirachta indica L. and on dead stems of Leucaena leucocephala (Lamk) de wit. The fungi were studied in details with respect to its taxonomy and identity. It is proved to be distinct after comparative studies with other known species of Aplosporella including the type species, in morphological characters and dimensions especially in the size of pycnostroma and conidia. Hence, they are described under a new taxon.
