Type species – Staninwardia breviuscula B. Sutton, Transactions of the British Mycological Society 57: 541 (1971).
Notes – Staninwardia was introduced by Sutton (1971). The type species S. breviuscula was reported on Eucalyptus. Summerell et al. (2006) introduced a second species, S. suttonii also from Eucalyptus. Unlike other genera in Extremaceae, Staninwardia has a coelomycetous asexual morph. It is characterized by acervular conidiomata and basipetally catenate, 1-septate, pale brown conidia with a mucilaginous sheath (Sutton 1971, Summerell et al. 2006).
