Gelasinospora is a genus of fungi within the order Sordariales.


  • Gelasinospora as a genus is made up of perithecial fungi, meaning that they discharge their ascospores through an ostiole.
  • Spores do not germinate easily, needing a treatment of temperature, chemicals or a combination of the two to initiate germination.
  • Like most ascomycetes, Gelasinospora species typically have 8 spores in each ascus.
