Type speciesGamsia dimera (W. Gams) M. Morelet

Notes – This genus was separated from Wardomyces on the basis of well-differentiated conidiophores, and the conidial arrangement with large apical clusters. This separation is also supported by the phylogenetic studies. The genus was accepted in Microascaceae by Kirk et al. (2013), Sandoval-Denis et al. (2016a), Maharachchikumbura et al. (2015, 2016b) and Wijayawardene et al. (2017a, 2018a). The sexual morph of the genus is undetermined.
