Type species: Anthopsis deltoidea Fil. March., A. Fontana & Luppi Mosca

Saprobic on soil, foam of a river, or pathogenic on human subcutaneous infection. Colonies cream-colored, light mouse grey to dark grey, velvety-woolly. Hyphae grey olivaceous when mature, septate, constrictions at the septa, smooth-walled, guttulate or aguttulate, with or without oil droplets. Sexual morph: Undetermined. Asexual morph: Hyphomyctous. Conidiophores absent or rarely reduced to a short cell basal to the conidiogenous cells. Conidiogenous cells enteroblastic, inverted, phialidic, clustering as two to eight ampulliform phialides, arising from a hyphal swelling, with distinct sessile collarettes at the base, near the point where the phialide is inserted on the hypha, forming disk flowers of a capitulum, sometimes integrated, with a sessile collarette, sub-hyaline to pale olivaceous. Conidia aggregated, but easily dispersed, ellipsoidal or pyriform, mature conidia deltoid, sometimes ellipsoidal to subspherical in chains, aseptate, hyaline to pale brown, grey olivaceous, straight at one side or sometimes concave, smooth-walled, aguttulate, without oil droplets, without a gelatinous sheath or appendages. Spermatial state absent. Chlamydospores absent (Rayner, 1970, Moussa et al. 2016)
