Type species Spumatoria longicollis Massee & E.S. Salmon

Notes Spumatoria longicollis was found on dung of Equus caballus in the UK. The genus is characterised by globose perithecia, with one or seldom two necks, with ostiolar hyphae and hyaline, 2(−3)celled, clavate, coarsely guttulate ascospores. The asexual morph is sporothrixlike, with dacrioid conidia and blastoconidia growing directly from undifferentiated hyphae (Giraldo et al. 2017a).
