Type speciesGlonium stellatum Muhl. ex Fr.

NotesGlonium is characterized by varied hysterothecia, one in which the fruiting bodies are frequently bifurcate to a greater (e.g. Glonium stellatum and G. circumserpens) or lesser (e.g. G. graphicum) degree, the former two species with radiating stellate composites, usually seated on subicula. The genus comprises thress species with molecular data, two strains of G. stellatum, from Michigan (CBS 207.34) and Tennessee (ANM 32), the USA, and two of G. circumserpens, isolated from wood (CBS 123342 / BPI 878738) and dolerite stone (CBS 123343 / BPI 878739) from Tasmania.
