The hyperparasitic hyphomycete Cladophialophora pucciniophila sp. nov., collected on rust telia of Puccinia polygoni-amphibii from Korea, is described, illustrated, and compared with allied species. The new species differs from previously described Cladophialophora species in having allantoid conidia and hyperparasitism on a rust fungus. Phylogenetic analysis of this fungus based on ITS rDNA data confirms its placement within the genus Cladophialophora.
