MycoBank number: MB 9840; Index Fungorum number: IF 9840; Facesoffungi number: FoF 09214; – 34 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), 4 species with molecular data.

Type species: Scolecobasidium terreum E.V. Abbott, Mycologia 19(1): 30 (1927).

Notes: Scolecobasidium are characterized by having T- or Y-shaped or bilobed, 2- to many-celled conidia and ampulliform conidiogenous cells, possessing one to three conidiumbearing denticles at the apex of the conidiophores (Hao et al. 2013). Shen et al. (2020) included this genus in Sympoventuriaceae based on morphology of slow growing olivaceous colonies. The type species of this genus also clusters inside the family. Therefore, we accept this genus in this family.
