MycoBank number: MB 819069; Index Fungorum number: IF 819069; Facesoffungi number: FoF 06718; 1 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), 1 species with molecular data.

Type species: Umthunziomyces hagahagensis Crous & M.J. Wingf., Persoonia 37: 315 (2016).

Notes: The monotypic genus Umthunziomyces was introduced by Crous et al. (2016a) and is known only from its asexual morphs. Umthunziomyces is similar to Kellermania in having septate conidia, but they are longer and narrower than in the latter genus. Phillips et al. (2019) included Umthunziomyces in Planistromellaceae with evidence from the phylogenetic analyses of ITS and LSU sequence data.
