Type speciesGaeumannomycella caricis Hern.-Restr. & Crous

NotesGaeumannomycella caricis was found on Carex rostrata in the UK. The genus produces phialidic conidiogenous cells that are straight or curved, ampulliform to lageniform or conical shaped, with lunate or cylindrical and hyaline conidia, and hyaline hyphopodia that become brown when mature (Hernández-Restrepo et al. 2016b). Crous et al. (2019a) introduced a second species, G. caricicola, found on a dead leaf of Carex remota in Germany.
