Type species – Hermatomyces Speg.
Notes – Hermatomyces is a hyphomycetous genus. Hermatomyces species are cosmopolitan in distribution and recorded from both temperate and tropical countries (i.e. Brazil, China, Cuba, Japan, Panama, Philipines, Thailand, Venezuela (Doilom et al. 2017, Hashimoto et al. 2017b, Koukol et al. 2018, Tibpromma et al. 2018). Host-specificity of Hermatomyces has yet to be elucidated and species have been recorded from various plant families (Acanthaceae, Arecaceae, Asteraceae, Fabaceae, Pandanaceae) (Doilom et al. 2017, Hashimoto et al. 2017b, Tibpromma et al. 2017, Koukol et al. 2018, Tibpromma et al. 2018). The connectively of sexual and as asexual morphs is not proven yet, as nobody has obtained any sexual morph for Hermatomyces species (Hashimoto et al. 2017b, Wijayawardene et al. 2017a, Tibpromma et al. 2018).
