Type species: Aquaphila albicans Goh, K.D. Hyde & W.H. Ho, Mycol. Res. 102(5): 588 (1998).

Notes: Castañeda-Ruíz et al. (2000) introduced A. edentata based on morphology. Tsui et al. (2007) accepted Aquaphila as a member of Tubeufiaceae based on phylogenetic analyses. Boonmee et al. (2014b) linked its sexual-asexual morphs based on phylogenetic evidence. The sexual morph of Aquaphila is characterized by dark globose to subglobose ascomata covered by brown setae, and cylindrical-clavate asci with fusiform ascospores (Boonmee et al. 2014b). Its asexual morphs are hyaline flexuous to geniculate conidiophores with hyaline fusoid to falcate or sigmoid conidia (Goh et al. 1998a; Boonmee et al. 2014b; Hyde et al. 2016b). Hyde et al. (2016b) reported a new record of A. albicans associated with submerged wood in southern Thailand.
