Type species – Pyrigemmula aurantiaca D. Magyar & Shoemaker
Notes – Pyrigemmula is a monotypic genus based on hyphomycete P. aurantiaca (Magyar et al. 2011) and was isolated from inner bark or bark fissures of grapevines and also from other woody hosts (Magyar et al. 2011). Even though P. aurantiaca occurs on fresh plant material, the ecological role of the species is not understood (Magyar et al. 2011). Pyrigemmula aurantiaca is characterised by pear-shaped, brown conidiogenous cells and distoseptate, reddish brown conidia without appendages (Magyar et al. 2011).
