Type species – Palmaria montaneus (K.D. Hyde, J. Fröhl. & Joanne E. Taylor) K.D. Hyde, J. Fröhl. & Joanne E. Taylor
Notes – Palmaria was introduced as Palmomyces by Hyde et al. (1998a) with P. montaneus occurring on a leaf of Oraniopsis appendiculata in Queensland. The genus was recorded associated with leaf spots on palms (Arecaceae) and only the sexual morph is known. Palmaria is characterised by solitary, immersed, subglobose ascomata, cylindric-clavate asci with a J-, subapical ring and hyaline, 1-septate, obclavate apiospores, with a mucilaginous sheath (Hyde et al. 1998a).
