Type speciesMammaria echinobotryoides Ces.

NotesMammaria is an asexual genus which has brown to vinaceous brown mycelium and broadly ellipsoid conidia with a longitudinal germ slit (Rabenhorst 1854). Mammaria echinobotryoides was obtained in culture of Cercophora natalitia (Barr 1990b, del Valle Catania et al. 2011). Pseudocercophora was found in Singapore and introduced as the sexual morph of Mammaria, as they share similar conidial characters (Subramanian & Sekar 1986). However, Mammaria is recommended as the current name, if the nomenclature principle of priority is followed (Réblová et al. 2016b).
