MycoBank number: MB 8498; Index Fungorum number: IF 8498; Facesoffungi number: FoF 05503; 8 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), 1 species with sequence data.

Type speciesHemibeltrania cinnamomi (Deighton) Piroz.

NotesHemibeltrania was established by Pirozynski (1963) to accommodate H. cinnamomi and H. nectandrae. The genus is characterised by unbranched or sparingly branched conidiophores arising from radially lobed basal cells, sympodial and denticulate conidiogenous cells, and broadly ellipsoidal, limoniform, ovoid, obovoid, cymbiform, navicular, biconic or fusiform, pale olivaceous, aseptate conidia without a hyaline transverse band (Seifert et al. 2011). In addition, Hemibeltrania lacks a separating cell. A synopsis of accepted Hemibeltrania species was provided by Rajeshkumar et al. (2016b). Lin et al. (2017b) provided sequence data for H. cinnamomi, which was collected from Thailand.
