Type speciesRostrohypoxylon terebratum J. Fourn. & M. Stadler

NotesRostrohypoxylon is a monotypic genus characterized by its erumpent effuse stromata featuring stout, strongly protruding ostiolar necks and KOH extractable pigments. Multigene phylogenies confirmed that Rostrohypoxylon has a close affinity to Annulohypoxylon, but it appeared in a sister clade to the species of the latter genus and has different stromal HPLC profiles. Therefore, the genus is accepted as a separate genus in Hypoxylaceae (Fournier et al. 2010, Daranagama et al. 2018, Wendt et al. 2018).
