Type speciesMadurella mycetomatis (Laveran) Brumpt

NotesMadurella was introduced by Brumpt (1905) to accommodate the species Streptothrix mycetomatis. Madurella species are the causative agents of mycetoma in humans worldwide (Findlay et al. 1979, Mukerji & Manoharachary 2010, de Hoog et al. 2012, Bolis et al. 2018, Norina et al. 2018, Mekoguem et al. 2019). The genus is characterised by asexual morphs with slow-growing, white to brown colonies, hyphae producing chlamydospores, and conidiophores and conidia have not been observed (Seifert et al. 2011).
