Type species – Beltraniopsis esenbeckiae Bat. & J.L. Bezerra
Notes – Beltraniopsis was introduced by Batista & Bezerra (1960). It is characterised by unbranched, setiform conidiophores arising from radially lobed basal cells, sympodial and denticulate conidiogenous cells, swollen separating cells and biconic, rostrate conidia with a hyaline transverse band (Seifert et al. 2011). Most Beltraniopsis species were collected from terrestrial litter, however, B. tanzaniensis was reported from decaying submerged leaves in India (Patil & Borse 2015).
