Associated with rock. Sexual morph: Unknown. Asexual morph: Colonies black in reverse, velvety and green in obverse, becoming dark green or black near the periphery, compact, lobed, cerebriform, with regular margin. Hyphae septate, sub hyaline to dark brown, branched, consisting in cylindroid cells, guttulate with smooth thick wall, constricted at the septa, sometime developing transversal septa in a later stage.

Type species: Hyphoconis sterilis Egidi & Quaedvl.
Notes: Hyphoconis is characterised by septate, sub hyaline to dark brown hyphae. According to Egidi et al. (2019), Hyphoconis is related to genera in the Capnodiales but the exact taxonomic position is unknown. Hyphoconis is currently placed in Capnodiales genera incertae sedis. Molecular markers available for Hyphoconis are ITS, LSU and RPB2.
