Type species: Itersonilia perplexans Derx., in Bulletin du Jardin Botanique de Buitenzorg 17: 471 (1948)
Notes: The species Udeniomyces pannonicus was separated from the Udeniomyces clade and located together with Itersonilia perplexans based on molecular data (Niwata et al., 2002, Boekhout et al., 2011, Weiss et al., 2014, Liu et al., 2015a). I. perplexans and U. pannonicus are phenotypically similar by forming grayish to yellowish colonies, whereas the other Udeniomyces species form pinkish-white to orange-white colonies. The emended genus Itersonilia contained two species and an additional sequence representing a potential new species was obtained from public databases.

Figure 1. Phylogenetic relationships of yeasts and related taxa from the order Cystofilobasidiales in Tremellomycetes obtained by maximum-likelihood analysis of LSU (D1/D2 domains) rRNA gene. Tree topology was backbone-constrained with the well-supported (>85 %) bipartitions of the topology of the seven-genes tree. Bootstrap percentages (BP) of maximum likelihood and neighbour-joining analyses from 1 000 replicates are shown respectively from left to right on the deep and major branches resolved and in brackets following recognised clades. The type species of accepted genera are in bold and the taxa not included in the seven-genes dataset are in red. Note: ns, not supported (BP < 50 %).
