Type speciesRhamphoria delicatula Niessl

NotesRhamphoria is characterized by black, astromatic, perithecial ascomata with a distinct papilla or rostrate neck, unitunicate asci with a J-, apical ring and hyaline, dictyospores that may produce ascoconidia while still in the asci (e.g. Rhamphoria pyriformis). The species in Rhamphoria are mainly separated by the size of ascospores, number of transverse and longitudinal septa and to a lesser degree on spore shape (Réblová & Štěpánek 2018).
