Type species – Phialemonium obovatum W. Gams & McGinnis
Notes – Phialemonium was introduced by Gams & McGinnis (1983) to accommodate three species. The genus is characterized by phialides that are often inflated at the base, with conspicuous collarettes and conidia arranged in slimy heads or in long chains, and may have connectives at both ends. Phialemonium was revised by Perdomo et al. (2013b), its species are pathogens and can infect both immunocompromised and immunocompetent hosts (Perdomo et al. 2011).
