Ochroconis de Hoog & Arx, Kavaka 1: 57 (1974).
MycoBank number: MB 9136; Index Fungorum number: IF 9136; Facesoffungi number: FoF 06349; – 24 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), 14 species with molecular data.
Type species: Ochroconis constricta (E.V. Abbott) de Hoog & Arx, Kavaka 1: 57 (1974) .
≡ Scolecobasidium constrictum E.V. Abbott, Mycologia 19(1): 30 (1927).
Notes: Ochroconis species can be distinguished in their slow to moderate growth, colonies of brown to olivaceous, brownish, septate conidiophores and dark pigmented, and rough-walled conidia produced by sympodial conidiogenesis and liberated rhexolytically (Giraldo et al. 2014). Machouart et al. (2014) included Ochroconis in Sympoventuriaceae based on phylogeny. Pseudoparaphyses and hyaline, symmetrical ascospores and a saprobic nutritional mode are considered to confirm its placement in Sympoventuriaceae.
