Type species – Vicosamyces venturisporus Firmino, A.R. Machado & O.L. Pereira, Fungal Diversity 95: 12 (2019).
Notes – Vicosamyces was introduced by Phookamsak et al. (2019) to accommodate Vicosamyces venturisporus which was collected from leaves of Eugenia sp. (Myrtaceae). Vicosamyces species are characterized in having globose to pyriform ascomata, solitary, immersed in large, orange-brown wounds and 2-celled, apiospores. The phylogeny of Vicosamyces showed some close affinities with Austropleospora, but Vicosamyces has 2-celled, apiospores, while Austropleospora has muriform ascospores (Phookamsak et al. 2019).
