Type species: Miyakeomyces bambusae Hara [as 'Miyakeamyces'], Bot. Mag., Tokyo 27(no. 317): (248) (1913)




Notes: The monotypic Miyakeomyces was found to be parasitic on leaves of Phyllostachys (Hara 1913). von Höhnel (1918) observed that M. bambusae makes the leaf yellow and thick, and its fruiting bodies appear on both sides of the leaf (copied from Huang et al. 2021).
