Puttemansia Henn., Hedwigia 41: 112 (1902).

MycoBank number: MB 4562; Index Fungorum number: IF 4562; Facesoffungi number: FoF 00217; – 16 morphological species, (Species Fungorum 2020), molecular data unavailable.

Type species: Puttemansia lanosa Henn., Hedwigia 41: 112 (1902).

Notes: Puttemansia was introduced to accommodate parasitic or hyperparasitic taxa occurring on leaves (Hennings 1902). Its asexual morphs are hyphomycetous in the genera Guelichia and Tetranacrium and may need synonymizing (Hyde et al. 2011, 2013). Puttemansia is presently placed in Paranectriellaceae (see morphological description in Boon- mee et al. 2014b). The genus needs sequence data to indicate the generic placement.
