Type species – Apioclypea livistonae K.D. Hyde
Notes – The genus was introduced by Hyde et al. (1994b) with A. livistonae as the type species, as a saprobe on the dead rachis of Livistona (Arecaceae) in Papua New Guinea. Two further species were introduced by Taylor & Hyde (2003). The genus is characterized by solitary, globose or subglobose ascomata, immersed under a clypeus, with a J-, subapical, ascal ring and hyaline apiospores with a mucilaginous sheath (Hyde et al. 1994b, Kang et al. 1999c, Taylor & Hyde 2003).
