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