Microstromatales » Microstromatales genera incertae sedis


Baueromyces Q.M. Wang, D. Begerow, and M. Groenew in Li, Wang et al., Frontiers in Microbiology 12(no. 777338): 24 (2022)

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.

Index Fungorum Number: IF 839577

Type species: Baueromyces planticola Q.M. Wang, D. Begerow and M. Groenew. in Li, Wang et al., Frontiers in Microbiology 12(no. 777338): 24 (2022)
