Notes – The hyphomycetous genus Conicomyces was introduced by Sinclair & Eicker (1983). Species of Conicomyces are lignicolous being saprobic on decaying woody substrates (Holubová- Jechová 1973a, Sinclair & Eicker 1983, Illman & White 1985, Liu et al. 2015). Conicomyces species are characterised by cone-shaped, setose synnemata, macronematous, enteroblastic conidiophores and aseptate, fusiform conidia bearing an apical appendage (Sinclair & Eicker 1983).
