Type speciesGloniopsis decipiens De Not., G. bot. ital. 2(7–8): 12, 23 (1847).

Notes – This genus was reviewed by Boehm et al. (2009b) with only seven species based on morphological and phylogenetic data (Boehm et al. 2009a, b, Hyde et al. 2016, Jayasiri et al. 2019). However, the genus is polyphyletic (Boehm et al. 2009a). The genus is characterised by hyaline to yellow dictyospores, curved, in outline obovoid, ends obtuse to sub- to acuminate, multi-septate, with one or more longitudinal septa, constricted at the first-formed septum, sometimes constricted at additional septa, and usually surrounded by a gelatinous sheath, which may dissipate with age (Boehm et al. 2009a, Jayasiri et al. 2018).
