Index Fungorum number: IF 555334; Facesoffungi number: FoF 04518, 2 morphological species (Species Fungorum, 2022), 2 species with molecular data.

Saprobic on decaying leaves or wood in terrestrial habitats. Sexual morph: Unknown. Asexual morph: Hyphomycetous. Colonies on natural substrate, group together in small groups, blackish to brown, velvety, glistening, conidia readily liberated when disturbed. Mycelium immersed in the substrate, composed of branched, septate, hyaline to subhyaline hyphae. Conidiophores mononematous, fasciculate, septate, hyaline to subhyaline, branched or unbranched. Conidiogenous cells holoblastic, monoblastic, integrated, terminal, determinate, cylindrical, hyaline to subhyaline. Conidia acrogenous, globose to broadly oval, flattened, one-cell thick, muriform, yellow– brown to brown (adapted from Tibpromma et al., 2018).


Type species: Yunnanomyces pandanicola Tibpromma & K.D. Hyde
