Type species – Flavomyces fulophazii D.G. Knapp, Kovács, J.Z. Groenew. & Crous, Persoonia 35: 93 (2015).
Notes – Flavomyces fulophazii was reported as a root endophyte and only mycelium morphology is known. Knapp et al. (2015) pointed out this species did not belong to any existing family. Subsequently, Tanaka et al. (2015) carried out a comprehensive study on the suborder Massarineae and Flavomyces fulophazii (CBS 135761) formed a distinct lineage in Periconiaceae in their phylogenetic analyses.
