Additions to the knowledge on the genus Xylaria from Canaima National Park, Bolivar State, Venezuela.
As part of a study on wood fungal sucession on fallen logs in the area of Luepa, Gran Sabana, Canaima National Park, Bolivar State, Venezuela, between 880 and 1250 m, species belonging to the Xylariaceae (Ascomycota) were collected by Iturriaga & Urbina during six field trips to the area. Nine specimens of Xylaria were determined as X. arbuscula, X. obovata, X. polymorpha, and X. scruposa. These four species are new records for Bolivar State, Venezuela, which together with six previously recorded species, make a total of 15 species of Xylaria known for Bolivar State.
