The new species Dactylaria belliana and D. ficusicola were isolated from leaf litter of an Australian tropical rainforest. Dactylaria belliana differs from other species within this genus in having narrowly fusiform, uniseptate conidia and pigmented, denticulate conidiophores. Dactylaria ficusicola is similar in morphology to D. hemibeltranioidea but differs in producing only cylindrical narrow conidia while the latter species also has fusiform and naviculate conidia. The new species are described and illustrated here. A synopsis of species described in Dactylaria sensu de Hoog since the review by Goh and Hyde (1997) is provided based on the literature.
