Type species – Budhanggurabania cynodonticola P. Wong, Khemmuk & R.G. Shivas

Notes – Budhanggurabania cynodonticola was introduced from diseased roots and stolons of Cynodon in New South Wales, Queensland and the Northern Territory, Australia (Crous et al. 2015c, Wong et al. 2015). Sexual morphs of Budhanggurabania are characterized by ellipsoidal ascospores, 3-dark brown septa, brown in central cells, hyaline to pale brown in apical cells, with oblique striations in lateral view (Crous et al. 2015c). Hyphomycetous asexual morphs are characterized by hyaline conidiophores, phialidic conidiogenous cells, straight to slightly curved, and conidia that are hyaline, cylindrical or slightly curved, aseptate and aggregated in slimy heads (Crous et al. 2015c).
