Type species – Forliomyces uniseptatus Phukhams., Camporesi & K.D. Hyde, Cryptog. Mycol. 37(1): 84 (2016).
Notes – Forliomyces was introduced for saprobic fungal strains associated with Salvia sp. and Spartium junceum (Wijayawardene et al. 2016a). The type species formed a relationship with the endophytic fungal strains while they appear as saprobes in the natural environments (Phukhamsakda et al. 2016). Forliomyces is characterized by its immersed, subglobose conidiomata; enteroblastic conidiogenous cells, with oblong, brown, granulate conidia with an abscission scar. Pinkish to red pigments radiated in both liquid and solid media types were also mentioned as an important character (Phukhamsakda et al. 2016).
