Type speciesDinemasporium graminum (Lib.) Lév. (Pers.) Sacc.

NotesDinemasporium species are coelomycetes, mainly occurring on various plant and woody substrates, including decaying wood (Nag Raj 1993, Hashimoto et al. 2015a, Crous et al. 2012e, Duan et at. 2007). Few were isolated from soil and human sputum (Nag Raj 1993, Hashimoto et al. 2015a, Crous et al. 2012e). The genus is characterised by superficial, setose, cupulate conidiomata, discrete or integrated conidiogenous cells and fusiform, naviculate or allantoid, aseptate conidia, with one setulae at each end, with or without lateral appendages (Crous et al. 2012e).
