Type species Afroraffaelea ambrosiae C.C. Bateman, Y.T. Huang & D.R. Simmons

Notes This monotypic genus was identified as symbionts of Premnobius cavipennis from pharyngeal mycangia, which were collected in the USA. The fungus was introduced based on culture characteristic on potato dextrose agar (PDA), sequencing data, and microtome sectioning with microCT scanning of mycangia (Bateman et al. 2016).
