Aureoconidiella Hern. -Restr. & Crous, in Hernández-Restrepo et al., Fungal Systematics and Evolution 6: 2 (2020).
Index Fungorum number: IF 833915; Facesoffungi number: FoF 10816, 1 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2022), 1 species with molecular data.
Associated with leaf spots of syzygium. Sexual morph: Unknown. Asexual morph: Conidiophores macronematous, simple, septate, brown. Conidiogenous cells integrated, terminal, polyblastic, with thickened scars, brown to pale brown. Conidia globose to subglobose with apiculate base, initially subhyaline, golden brown at maturity, verrucose (adapted from Hernández-Restrepo et al. 2020).
Type species: Aureoconidiella foliicola Hern. -Restr. & Crous
Notes: Aureoconidiella was introduced by Hernández-Restrepo et al. (2020) with A. foliicola as the type species. Aureoconidiella is characterised by macronematous, simple, septate conidiophores, terminal, polyblastic, conidiogenous cells with thickened scars and globose to subglobose conidia with an apiculate base. Aureoconidiella is morphologically and phylogenetically a distinct and type genus of Aureoconidiellaceae. Molecular markers available include LSU and ITS sequence data.
