Vertexicola K.D. Hyde, Ranghoo & S.W. Wong, Mycologia 92(5): 1019 (2000)

Index Fungorum number: IF28465; 2 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020)

Type species – Vertexicola caudata K.D. Hyde, S.W. Wong & Ranghoo

Notes – Vertexicola was introduced by Ranghoo et al. (2000) to accommodate V. caudata which was isolated from submerged wood in China and the Philippines. Vertexicola was listed in Annulatascaceae by Maharachchikumbura et al. (2015) and Wijayawardene et al. (2018a). However, it was placed in Diaporthomycetidae genera incertae sedis based on sequence data of one strain of V. confuse, which was invalidly published (Nom. inval. in Index Fungorum 2020). Due to the absence of morphological data, the validity of sequence data used by Zhang et al. (2017a) is unknown. We, therefore, retain Vertexicola in Annulatascaceae until the sequence data of the type species V. caudata are available.
