Etymology: In reference to the name of type genus Naematelia.
Diagnosis: Basidiocarps when formed caespitose, tuberculate or spherical to thick foliaceous or crumpled, invory, yellow, bright orange, reddish. Basidia subglobose, globose to ovoid, four-celled and with vertical or occasionally transverse septa. Orange-pigmented colonies may be present. True hyphae with clamp connections and haustorial branches sometimes present. Budding cells present. Ballistoconidia sometimes present. Fermentation absent. Nitrate and nitrite not utilised. Major CoQ system CoQ-10.
Index Fungorum number: IF813351
Type genus: Naematelia Fr., Observationes mycologicae 2: 370 (1818)
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.
