MycoBank number: MB 7356; Index Fungorum number: IF 7356; Facesoffungi number: FoF 05499; 27 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), 11 species with sequence data.
Type species – Beltraniella odinae Subram.
Notes – Beltraniella species are characterised by setae that are sterile extensions of conidiophores or occur among conidiophores or are lacking, unbranched and arising from radially lobed basal cells. Conidiophores are branched, often with setiform apex, arising from radially lobed basal cells. Conidiogenous cells are polyblastic and sympodial and produce acropleurogenous, turbinate or biconic conidia with a distinct hyaline transverse band.
Crous et al. (2016a) described a new Beltraniella species, B. acaciae based on morphology and phylogenetic analysis of ITS sequence data, revealed that B. acaciae was intermediate between Beltraniella and Beltrania. However, Beltraniella acaciae grouped together with other Beltraniella species within the Beltraniella clade in our phylogenetic analysis of combined ITS and LSU sequence data.
