Type speciesKalmusibambusa triseptata Phookamsak, Tennakoon & K.D. Hyde, Mycosphere 8(4): 718 (2017).

NotesKalmusibambusa was introduced by Thambugala et al. (2017b) as a monotypic genus to accommodate a bambusicolous species in Didymosphaeriaceae. Kalmusibambusa species differs from Kalmusia in having multi-loculate, coriaceous, elongated ascostromata, with a slit-like opening through host surface and cylindrical asci (Thambugala et al. 2017b). The connectively of sexual and asexual morphs is not proven yet, as no study has obtained any asexual morph for these species.
