Type speciesEmericellopsis terricola J.F.H. Beyma

NotesEmericellopsis species are primarily soil-derived fungi. Species of Emericellopsis have been isolated from various environments worldwide (viz. agricultural and forest soils, peat, rhizomes, prairies and freshwater-, estuarine- and marine-mud sediments, (Domsch et al. 1980). Globose asci contain 8 ascospores with light brown, ellipsoidal and wing-like appendages (Zuccaro et al. 2004). The asexual morphs have conidiophores arising from substratum or aerial hyphae, and hyaline, 1–2-guttulate, elongate-ellipsoidal conidia (Beyma 1940).
