Type speciesConlarium dupliciascosporum F. Liu & L. Cai

NotesConlarium was established by Liu et al. (2012) for the holomorph species C. duplumascosporum based on its distinct lineage among related taxa. Conlarium aquaticum and C. dupliciascosporum were found from submerged wood in freshwater, C. thailandense was from dead wood in a terrestrial habitat, C. baiseense, C. nanningense and C. sacchari were from sugarcane rhizosphere (Liu et al. 2012, Zhang et al. 2017a, Phookamsak et al. 2019, Xie et al. 2019). In this entry we illustrate Conlarium aquaticum and C. duplumascospora (Figs 80, 81).
