Aeminium J. Trovão, I. Tiago & A. Portugal, in Trovão et al., MycoKeys 45: 64 (2019).
Saprobic on host. Sexual morph: unknown. Asexual morph: Mycelium consisting of septate, smooth hyphae, gradually becoming wider, 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 (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 the type species. Aeminium comprises microcolonial black taxa characterised by thick-walled, dark chains of conidia. Aeminium is a slow growing fungus 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. Molecular markers available for Aeminium are ITS, LSU, RPB2.
