Type speciesMucispora obscuriseptata J. Yang, J. Bhat & K.D. Hyde

NotesMucispora is similar to Monotosporella in having macronematous, mononematous conidiophores, monoblastic conidiogenous cells and brown, ellipsoidal, clavate or obovoid conidia. However, they are phylogenetically distinct. Phylogenetic studies showed Mucispora grouped in Fuscosporellales (Yang et al. 2016b, 2017), while Monotosporella clustered within Pleurotheciales (Hernández-Restrepo et al. 2017). In this entry we introduced a new species, Mucispora infundibulata.
