Type speciesHawksworthiomyces lignivorus (De Mey., Z.W. de Beer & M.J. Wingf.) Z.W. de Beer, Marinc. & M.J. Wingf.

Notes – The genus was introduced to accommodate the type species, Hawksworthiomyces lignivorus, based on morphology and phylogenetic analyses (de Beer et al. 2016b). The asexual morphs have micronematous, unbranched or sparingly branched conidiophores and holoblastic, ellipsoidal to cylindrical conidia (de Beer et al. 2016b). The sexual morph is undetermined. Three species were detected by using environmental nucleic acid sequences (ENAS) to assess Fungal Diversity. (de Beer et al. 2016b).
