Type species – Clohesyomyces aquaticus K.D. Hyde, Aust. Syst. Bot. 6(2): 170 (1993).
Notes – Clohesyomyces aquaticus was collected from submerged wood in a freshwater stream in Australia. It was also reported in China (Cai et al. 2006b) and Thailand (Vijaykrishna et al. 2006). The genus is characterized by subglobose to ellipsoidal, immersed, think-walled conidiomata, conidiophores reduced to discrete, cylindrical, hyaline conidiogenous cells, and holoblastic, unicellular, becoming 1-euseptate, hyaline, guttulate conidia, not constricted at the septum, with a mucilaginous sheath (Hyde 1993). Zhang et al. (2012b) re-collected C. aquaticus and gave a detailed description and provided molecular data and placed Clohesyomyces into Lindgomycetaceae based on combined LSU and SSU sequence analysis. The sexual morph of Clohesyomyces is undetermined (Zhang et al. 2012b).
