Index Fungorum number: IF 25015; 3 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2021).
Saprobic on wood. Sexual morph: Ascostromata superficial or semi-immersed, brown to black, irregular in shape, surface furfuraceous or glabrous. Ascomata perithecial, gregarious, superficial or semi-immersed, globose to subglobose, membranaceous, orange, brown to black, ostiolate, with periphyses. Peridium membranaceous, comprising two layers, outer layer composed of brown cells of textura angularis; inner layer composed of hyaline cells of textura prismatica. Asci 8-spored, unitunicate, cylindrical, pedicellate, apex rounded, with J- apical ring. Ascospores uniseriate, 0–1-septate, unequal, oblong to ellipsoidal, smooth-walled, hyaline when young, composed of a large, brown cell with or without a terminal pore and a small, hyaline cell when mature, guttulate. Asexual morph: Undetermined (copied from Huang et al. 2021).
Type species: Apiocamarops alba Samuels & J.D. Rogers, Mycotaxon 28(1): 54 (1987)
Notes: Apiocamarops was established by Samuels and Rogers (1987) and resembles Camarops. Both genera have similar cylindrical asci and ellipsoidal ascospores with germ pore(s), but the ascospores in Apiocamarops are 1-septate and apicosporous, while those of Camarops lack septum (Samuels and Rogers 1987; Rogers 1988; Reagan and Waide 1996; Rogers and Ju 2003) (copied from Huang et al. 2021).
