Sexual reproduction observed in some species. Basidia cylindrical or occasionally globose, two-celled, with transverse and occasionally longitudinal septa, and globose basidiospores. Budding cells present. Ballistoconidia occasionally present. Fermentation absent. Nitration usually not utilised. Starch-like compounds usually produced. Major CoQ System CoQ-9 or CoQ-10.

Figure 1. A taxonomic framework of genera and higher levels in Tremellomycetes based on the seven-genes phylogeny (Liu et al. 2015). The tree backbone was constructed using Bayesian analysis and branch lengths were scaled in terms of expected numbers of nucleotide substitutions per site. The Bayesian posterior probabilities (PP) and 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. Note: ns, not supported (PP < 0.9 or BP < 50 %); nm, not monophyletic.
