Type speciesSepedonium mycophilum (Pers.) Nees

Notes – Link (1809) introduced the asexual morph genus Sepedonium based on S. mycophilum (Uredo mycophila) as the type of the genus. Sepedonium species are parasitic on basidiomycetes, mostly on Boletales species (Sahr et al. 1999). The genus is characterized by hyaline, septate conidiophores and occurrence of two or more synanamorphs producing aleurioconidia, phialoconidia and ampulloconidia (Sahr et al. 1999). No sexual morph has been linked to this genus.
