Type speciesSemidelitschia agasmatica Cain & Luck-Allen, Mycologia 61: 581 (1969). Notes – Semidelitschia, typified by Semidelitschia agasmatica was introduced by Cain & Luck-Allen (1969) and assigned to Sporormiaceae. The type was originally collected on dung of Bos taurus in South Dakota. The morphology of this genus is similar to Delitschia but differs by single-celled, dark ascospores with germination slits (Cain & Luck-Allen 1969). Barr (2000) transferred Semidelitschia to Delitschiaceae. Semidelitschia is a genus rarely recorded and needs molecular studies to resolve this issue.
