Type species: Kamalomyces indicus R.K. Verma, N. Sharma & Soni, Forest Fungi of Central India: 196 (2008).
Notes: Phookamsak et al. (2018) reported the phylogenetic relationship of Kamalomyces and first described its asexual morph. Kamalomyces is characterized by subglobose to lemoniform ascomata with short stalks on a subiculum of black hyphae, and broadly cylindrical to clavate asci with crowded, hyaline vermiform and septate ascospores (Verma et al. 2008; Phookamsak et al. 2018). Six Kamalomyces species are accepted, K. bambusicola, K. indicus, K. mahabaleshwarensis, K. mangrovei, K. polyseptatus and K. thailandicus (Lu et al. 2018b, Hyde et al. 2019).
