Etymology: The genus is named in honor of Robert Bauer for his pioneering work on the taxonomy of smuts.
Diagnosis: This genus is proposed for the branch represented by strain CGMCC 2.4532, which formed a separate branch from the genera in the Microstromatales (Exobasidiomycetes). The genus is mainly circumscribed by the phylogenetic analysis of the six-gene sequences.
Sexual reproduction not known. Colonies are butyrous, pink, and have smooth margins. Budding cells are present. Ballistoconidia are not produced. Hyphae are not formed.
