Type speciesNeogaeumannomyces bambusicola D.Q. Dai & K.D. Hyde

Notes – The genus is monotypic with Neogaeumannomyces bambusicola found dead culm of bamboo in Thailand (Liu et al. 2015). The genus is similar to Gaeumannomyces in perithecial ascomata with long necks, cylindrical asci and filiform ascospores. However, Neogaeumannomyces lacks hyphopodia whereas Gaeumannomyces species produce hyphopodiate mycelia (Walker 1972, Liu et al. 2015).
