Type species – Wardomycopsis inopinata Udagawa & Furuya
Notes – The asexual morphs are hyphomycetous saprobes. Conidiation at the early stages of Wardomycopsis resembles those of Wardomyces. However, the sexual morph of Wardomycopsis differ from those of Wardomyces, in terms of having straw-coloured, reniform to triangular ascospores with a single germ pore. Wardomycopsis species are distributed in Asia, Europe, and North America and are mainly soil-borne. The genus was accepted in Microascaceae by Ariyawansa et al. (2015), Seifert et al. (2011), Maharachchikumbura et al. (2015, 2016b), Sandoval-Denis et al. (2016a) and Wijayawardene et al. (2012, 2017a, 2018a).
