Notes – Fumiglobus was introduced by Reynolds & Gilbert (2006). It is characterised by pyriform bulbous pycnidia, with multi-seriate stalks, and round to slightly oval, hyaline conidia that often adhere in short chains. The first sequence data was provided by Bose et al. (2014). Their phylogenetic tree showed the placement of this genus based on Fumiglobus pieridicola within Capnodiaceae.
