Fusicladiella Höhn., Ber. dt. bot. Ges. 37: 155 (1919).
Index Fungorum number: IF 8288; Facesoffungi number: FoF 08608, 6 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2022), no molecular data available.
Saprobic on host. Colonies suborbicular or angular. Mycelium immersed. Stroma sometimes present in the host cuticle. Setae and hyphopodia absent. Sexual morph: Unknown. Asexual morph: Conidiophores macronematous, mononematous, crowded, unbranched, at first erect, straight or slightly curved, cylindrical, almost colourless, later strongly curved, brown or olivaceous brown, pale and thin-walled on one side, dark and thick-walled on the other, the curvature always taking place towards the thin-walled side, smooth or sometimes finely verruculose near the apex. Conidiogenous cells monoblastic, integrated, terminal, determinate, cylindrical, cicatrized, the single apical scar broad and flat. Conidia solitary, dry, aerogenous, straight or slightly curved, often cylindrical, rounded at the apex, truncate with a thin scar at the base, but sometimes clavate, ellipsoidal or obclavate, colourless to pale olive, smooth to finely verruculose, almost always 1(–2)-septate (adapted from Videira et al. 2017).
Type species: Fusicladiella aronici (Sacc.) Höhn.
Notes: Fusicladiella is characterised by immersed mycelium, macronematous, mononematous conidiophores, monoblastic conidiogeneous cells, solitary, dry, aerogenous conidia. Fusicladiella is only known by its hyphomycetous asexual morph and its taxonomic position is uncertain. The placement of Fusicladiella in Mycosphaerellaceae is doubtful.
