Notes – Wanasinghe et al. (2018c) introduced Sporormurispora for two dictyospore fungi that clustered in Sporormiaceae in their phylogenetic analysis. The genus was found as saprobes in terrestrial habitats and it is characterized by black, uniloculate ascomata with an ostiole, thick, mostly ellipsoidal, brown, muriform ascospores. Asexual morph is undetermined.
