Index Fungorum number: IF552532
Longipedicellataceae was introduced by Phukhamsakda et al. (2016) to accommodate two saprobic genera, Longipedicellata and Pseudoxylomyces found on woody substrates in freshwater habitats. Longipedicellataceae is characterized by semi-immersed or erumpent, clypeate ascomata on the host tissues with black to brown ostioles, clavate asci with long pedicels, and 2-celled, hyaline ascospores. Chlamydospore formation is a significant character of this family (Phukhamsakda et al. 2016). The latest treatment and updated account of
Longipedicellataceae followed recent papers of Hongsanan et al. (2020) and Wijayawardene et al. (2020). An updated phylogeny for the family is provided.
