Index Fungorum number: IF28493; 2 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020)

Type species – Aqualignicola hyalina Ranghoo, C.K.M. Tsui & K.D. Hyde

Notes – Aqualignicola was introduced by Ranghoo et al. (2001) to accommodate a single species A. hyalina which was isolated from submerged wood in freshwater in Hong Kong, China. Another species, A. vaginata, was introduced in the genus from submerged wood in Yunnan, China (Hu et al. 2012). There is no sequence data for either species and the family placement requires confirmation.
