Type speciesHansfordia ovalispora S. Hughes

NotesHansfordia was introduced by Hughes (1951a) with 12 species based on morphology. Crous et al. (2019b) introduced H. pruni and H. pulvinata to this genus based on morphology and LSU and ITS sequence data. The main characters to differentiate species of Hansfordia is the denticulate nature of cylindrical conidiogenous cells with regular verticils inserted directly on the stipe (Hughes 1951a).
