Type species – Sarimanas shirakamiense M. Matsum., K. Hiray. & Kaz. Tanaka, in Liu et al., Fungal Divers. 72:127 (2015).
Notes – Sarimanas was established by Liu et al. (2015) to accommodate S. shirakamiense (generic type) and S. pseudofluviatile based on morphological characters and phylogenetic analysis. It is characterized by immersed, globose to subglobose, ostiolate ascomata, septate pseudoparaphyses, cylindrical to ovoid asci and broadly fusiform, 1-septate, hyaline ascospores with an entire gelatinous sheath. Morphologically, Sarimanas is similar to Massarina, however, phylogenetic analyses indicate that this genus has a close affinity to genera in Melanommataceae (Liu et al. 2015).
