Recurvomyces Selbmann & de Hoog, Stud. Mycol. 61: 10 (2008).
Extremophilic on rock. Sexual morph: Unknown. Asexual morph: Hyphomyceteous. Colonies very slow growing, compact, heaped, black or olive-black. Mycelium composed of long, smooth, yellowish brown and thick-walled hyphae. Torulose hypae sometimes present, brown, thick-walled, smooth to verrucose, enteroblastically proliferating. Conidiophores macronematous or semi-macronematous, often branched with lateral branches mostly at roughly right angle and bent down. Conidia produced by enteroblastic proliferation released by schizolytic secession. Ramoconidia sometimes present (adapted from Selbmann et al. 2008).
Type species: Recurvomyces mirabilis Selbmann & de Hoog
Notes: Recurvomyces was previously considered to have a phylogenetic affinity to the order Capnodiales (Selbmann and de Hoog 2008). Quaedvlieg et al. (2014) accepted Recurvomyces as a genus in Teratosphaeriaceae based on morphology and phylogenetic analyses. Molecular markers available for Recurvomyces are LSU, SSU, ITS and RPB2.
