Type speciesPseudoxylomyces elegans (Gohet al.) Kaz. Tanaka & K. Hiray., Stud Mycol 82: 126 (2015).

Xylomyces elegans Goh, W.H. Ho, K.D. Hyde & C.K.M. Tsui, Mycol. Res. 101(11): 1324 (1997).

NotesPseudoxylomyces elegans was found in aquatic habitats on decaying wood (Tanaka et al. 2015, Phukhamsakda et al. 2016). The genus is characterized by dematiaceous mycelia and conidiophores, with thick-walled, terminal or intercalary, septate conidia, which are very similar to the chlamydospore structures in Longipedicellata aptrootii (Phukhamsakda et al. 2016).
