Type speciesRemersonia thermophila (Fergus) Seifert & Samson

NotesRemersonia was introduced by Seifert et al. (1997) for the thermophilic synnematous hyphomycete Stilbella thermophila. Based on previous studies and phylogenetic analyses, Wang et al. (2019b) confirmed the placement of Remersonia as a monotypic genus in Chaetomiaceae. The genus is characterised by synnemata that are cylindrical to clavate, capitate, unbranched and hyaline. Conidiophores are unbranched or simply branched, have percurrently proliferating conidiogenous cells, and conidia are hyaline, oblong, clavate or ellipsoidal with truncate or rounded bases (Seifert et al. 1997). The sexual morph is undetermined.
