Geotrichites glaesarius, a new fungal anamorph, is described from Dominican amber of
late Oligocene or early Miocene age. A well-developed mycelium is present on the surface
of an arachnid cadaver; hyphae are not present in the body cavity. Septate hyphae are either
erect or decumbent, and extensively branched. Oblong arthroconidia are borne terminally
on undifferentiated hyphae. Conidiogenesis appears to be of the holoarthric type with conidia
sometimes joined by narrow connectives. The fungus is apparently saprophytic and resembles
several modern moniliaceous fungi, particularly Geotrichum candidum.
