MycoBank number: MB 1972; Index Fungorum number: IF 1972; Facesoffungi number: FoF 06830; 1 morphological species.

Type speciesFairmania singularis Sacc.

Notes – Malloch & Cain (1971) placed F. singularis in Microascus as M. singularis as they were similar and this was accepted by von Arx et al. (1988). However, due to the presence of longitudinal striations on the conidial wall and erect and thick-walled annellides of the species and phylogenetic differences, Sandoval-Denis et al. (2016), reinstated Fairmania in Microascaceae. Fairmania species are wood-decay saprobes and have been reported from Canada, Japan and the USA.
