Aeminium J. Trovão, I. Tiago & A. Portugal, in Trovão, Tiago, Soares, Paiva, Mesquita, Coelho, Catarino, Gil & Portugal, MycoKeys 45: 64 (2019)

 Index Fungorum number: IF 824976; Facesoffungi number: FoF 06986, 1 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2021), 1 species with molecular data.

Saprobic on host. Asexual morph: mycelium consisting of septate, smooth hyphae, gradually becoming widen, thick-walled, darker and developing into meristematic chains of conidia. Conidia dark brown, thick-walled, smooth, rugose, globose with single central septa resulting from the differentiation of toruloid-like hyphal cells. Chlamydospores reported. Sexual morph: unknown (Adapted from Trovão et al. 2019).


Type species: Aeminium ludgeri J. Trovão, I. Tiago & A. Portugal


Notes: Aeminium was introduced by Trovão et al. (2019) with A. ludgeri as type species.  Aeminium comprises microcolonial black fungi characterized by thick-walled, dark chains of conidia. Aeminium is a slow growing fungi and has late melanization, resulting from the late separation of intercalary or terminal hyphal cells into arthroconidia, that turn olivaceous brown to dark-brown. Aeminium is a distinct and well-supported genus in Aeminiaceae.
