Sporormiella
provided by wikipedia EN

Sporormiella is a genus of fungi in the family Sporormiaceae.[1] Species of the genus are obligately coprophilous, occurring on the dung of domestic livestock as well as wild herbivores.[2] The genus is distributed across boreal and temperate regions of the world, and contains about 80 species.[3] The spores have characteristic features–they are dark brown, septate and have a pronounced sigmoid germination pore, which enables their use in paleoecology as a proxy for the abundance of grazing mammals.[4][5]
