Type species Engleromyces goetzei Henn.

Notes Engleromyces is characterized by massive, hard stromata similar to macroxylariaceous genera such as Sarcoxylon (Whalley et al. 2010). Engleromyces goetzei possesses medicinal values and is used in Africa and China (Kokwaro 1983). Both Engleromyces goetzei and E. sinensis have been analyzed for secondary metabolites and contain neoengleromycin and cytochalasins (Liu et al. 2002). Daranagama et al. (2018) accepted the genus in Xylariaceae until molecular data are available.
