Ophioceras was introduced by Saccardo (1883) with O. dolichostomum as the type species. The genus contains mostly saprobic species from freshwater habitats all over the world (Shearer et al. 1999, Tsui et al. 2001, Thongkantha et al. 2009, Hu et al. 2012). For an updated phylogeny for this genus, please see Hyde et al. (2020a). In this entry, a new host record of Ophioceras commune is described and illustrated.
