Savoryellales consists of Savoryellaceae with the genera Ascotaiwania, Canalisporium, Dermatisporium and Savoryella (Réblová et al. 2016c, Luo et al. 2019). Species are found in terrestrial, marine, brackish and freshwater habitats, as well as water-cooling towers (Jones & Eaton 1969, Minoura & Muroi 1978, Hyde & Jones 1988, Chang et al. 1998, Ranghoo & Hyde 1998, Luo et al. 2019). The sexual morphs of Savoryellales species have perithecial ascomata with elongate necks, while the asexual morphs are dematiaceous hyphomycetes with semi- macronematous conidiophores and monoblastic conidiogenous cells (Réblová et al. 2016c, Dayarathne et al. 2019a, Zhang et al. 2019). Savoryellales was initially placed in Hypocreomycetidae based on multi-gene phylogeny (Boonyuen et al. 2011). However, later it was raised to the subclass Savoryellomycetidae following molecular dating data with a stem age of 268 MYA, indicating a subclass status (Hongsanan et al. 2017). Currently there is one family and four genera in this order (this paper).
