Kevinhydea N.G. Liu, Y.Z. Lu & J.K. Liu, Mycological Progress 18: 675 (2019).

Index Fungorum number: IF 555352; Facesoffungi number: FoF 04875; 1 morphological species (Species Fungorum, 2022), 1 species with molecular data.

Saprobic on decaying wood in terrestrial habitat. Sexual morph: Unknown. Asexual morph: Hyphomycetous, chlamydosporous. Colonies on natural substrate superficial, effuse, sparse, pagoda-shaped. Mycelium mostly immersed, composed of pale brown to brown, septate, branched hyphae. Conidiophores macronematous, mononematous, short, septate, unbranched, cylindrical, brown to dark brown. Conidiogenous cells monoblastic, cylindrical, brown to dark brown. Conidia solitary, acrogenous, broadly oval to ellipsoid, muriform, dictyoseptate, pale brown when immature, dark brown to black when mature (adapted from Liu et al. 2019).


Type species: Kevinhydea brevistipitata N.G. Liu, Y.Z. Lu & J.K. Liu


Notes: Liu et al. (2019) provided a morphological comparison between Kevinhydea and other dictyosporous genera in Tubeufiaceae. Kevinhydea is a monotypic genus hitherto reported as saprobic from terrestrial habitat in Thailand (Liu et al. 2019). Kevinhydea is morphologically and phylogenetically a distinct genus in Tubeufiaceae. Molecular markers available for Kevinhydea are LSU and SSU.
