Dead leaves of Dasylirion were collected in Texas in Guadalupe Mountains National Park and Big Bend National Park, and in the Valley of Fires, New Mexico. The fungi present were identified and grown in culture to identify teleomorph-anamorph connections. Four new ascomycete species are described—Graphyllium dasylirionis, Splanchnonema dasylirionis, Chaetoplea dasylirionis, and Chaetoplea sotolifoliorum. In addition, a new genus, Parahendersonia, is described to accommodate the coelomycete anamorph of Chaetoplea dasylirionis.
