Chlamydotubeufia (Clade I) includes terrestrial taxa and produces dictyochlamydospores. This genus is distinct from the aquatic genus Aquaphila (Clade J) which produces sickle-shaped conidia (Tsui et al. 2007; Boonmee et al. 2011). In addition to the type species, C. huaikangplaensis, two other species are included in this genus, specifically C. chlamydosporum and C. khunkornensis. A new collection of Chlamydotubeufiahuaikangplaensis is illustrated below(THAILAND, Chiang Mai, Mae Taeng, Mushroom Research Centre, N19°17.123′ E 98°44. 009′, elev. ca. 900 msl., on dead wood of an unidentified tree, 23 June 2011, Saranyaphat Boonmee, MRC-02 (MFLU11–1145) = living culture = MFLUCC11–0509).
