Type speciesHormisciomyces prepusus Bat. & Nascim. [as ‘prepusum’], Anais Soc. Biol. Pernambuco 15(2): 350 (1957).

Notes – This genus is one of the asexual morphs of Euantennaria (Hughes 1972, 1974, Sivanesan 1984, Hyde et al. 2013, Wijayawardene et al. 2017b). The genus produces small, hyaline, thin-walled, phialo-conidia, arising from a ring of phialidic cells (Hughes 1972, 1974). Hormisciomyces phialidic state has also been found in Antennatula fisherae and A. dingleyae. The genus was linked with Trichopeltheca by Hughes (1976). However, these links between sexual and asexual morphs and relationships with other genera are not confirmed due to lack of cultures and sequence data.
