Notes – Egidi et al. (2014) introduced Vermiconia to accommodate V. antarctica, V. flagrans and V. foris. All three species were isolated from rock. Crous et al. (2019b) validated the genus name as Vermiconidia. This genus is characterized by straight conidiophores and dark brown, septate conidia resulting from acropetal, holoblastic conidiogenesis in culture (Egidi et al. 2014).
