Pseudoxylomyces Kaz. Tanaka & K. Hiray., in Tanaka et al., Stud. Mycol. 82: 126 (2015)
Index Fungorum number: IF811332
Pseudoxylomyces was introduced by Tanaka et al. (2015) to accommodate Xylomyces elegans. Xylomyces is characterized by large, thick-walled, dark, multiseptate, intercalary, narrowly fusiform chlamydospores but lacks conidiophores and conidiogenous cells (Goos et al. 1977, Goh et al. 1997). In contrast, Pseudoxylomyces is quite distinct in producing broadly fusiform conidia holoblastically at the tip of their conidiophores (Tanaka et al. 2015).
