Recurvomyces Selbmann & de Hoog, Stud. Mycol. 61: 10 (2008)
Index Fungorum number: IF 511293; Facesoffungi number: FoF 07035, 1 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2021), 1 species with molecular data.
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 introduced by Selbmann and de Hoog (2008) with R. mirabilis as type species. 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.
