NotesMatsushimamyces is illegitimate as it is later homonym of Matsushimomyces. The type of Matsushimamyces was collected from soil in India (Sharma et al. 2015). The genus was reported from soil and decaying leaves of unidentified trees with a ceomycetous asexual morph (see Sharma et al. 2015). The genus is characterized by solitary, erect, rarely branched conidiophores and solitary conidia that are straight or curved, fusoid to broadly ellipsoid, multi-septate, with apical and basal cells thin-walled, subhyaline to brown, median cells dark brown to black, thick- walled, and roughly to coarsely verruculose (see Sharma et al. 2015).
