Type species – Aureovirgo volantis J.A. van der Linde, Z.W. de Beer & Jol. Roux
Notes – Aureovirgo volantis was isolated from galleries of Cyrtogenius africus, on diseased Euphorbia ingens in Limpopo Province, South Africa (van der Linde et al. 2016). The sexual morph has globose ascomata with ostiolar hyphae and contains lunate ascospores with sheaths attenuated around each end. The asexual morph is leptographium–like with holoblastic, oblong–elliptical and oval conidia (van der Linde et al. 2016).
