AbstractTwo new genera, Gummiglobus with two species and the monotypic Andebbia, are described as segregates from the genus Mesophellia. Both genera have minutely ornamented spores. The species of Gummiglobus, moreover, have columellae with wedge-shaped to digitate or strand-like projections that extend to the endocutis of the peridium and are embedded in a remarkable gummy tissue.
