Etymology: The generic epithet refers to the “Hani” ethnic group in Honghe County, Yunnan Province, China.
It is saprobic on dead twigs and branches in terrestrial habitats. Sexual morph: the ascomata is a scattered, immersed to semi-immersed, subglobose to conical or shaped irregularly, glabrous, brown to dark brown ostiolate. The ostiole is a short papillate, black, smooth periphysate. The peridium comprises cells of textura angularis. The hamathecium comprises numerous, filamentous, branched, septate, pseudoparaphyses. The asci are eight- spored, bitunicate, fissitunicate, clavate, with a pedicel, apically rounded with or without an ocular chamber. The ascospores overlap the biseriate, are ellipsoidal to sub-fusiform, hyaline, one-septate, with small to large guttules in each cell, with the ends remaining rounded, surrounded by a distinct mucilaginous sheath. Asexual morph: Coelomycetous. The conidiomata are sporodochial on PDA, globose, solitary or aggregated, semi-immersed, black, exuding yellow conidial masses. Conidiophores and conidiogenous cells were not observed in vitro. The conidia are solitary, aseptate, globose to ellipsoid, with the hyaline becoming medium to golden brown, and finely verruculose.
Type species: Haniomyces dodonaeae
