MycoBank number: MB 820279; Index Fungorum number: IF 820279; Facesoffungi number: FoF 08344, 4 species.
Saprobic on wood and bark. Sexual morph: Undetermined. Asexual morph: Conidiophores micro- to semi-macronematous, sometimes reduced to conidiogenous loci in the hyphae. Conidiogenous cells mono- or polyblastic. Conidia solitary or in short chains, normally variable in shape, dark brown to black, muriform, verrucose to tuberculate.
Type – Pleomonodictys Hern.-Restr., J. Mena & Gené.
Notes – Hernández-Restrepo et al. (2017) indicated that Pleomonodictys capensis formed a lineage sister to Pleomonodictys descalsii FMR 12716, while distant to other clades in Pleosporales. Thus, Pleomonodictydaceae was introduced to accommodate Pleomonodictys.
