Index Fungorum number: IF 555606; Facesoffungi number: FoF03883; 1 morphological species (Hyde et al. 2020); 1 species with sequence data.


Saprobic on plant host. Sexual morph: Undetermined. Asexual morph: Hyphomycetous. Colonies effuse, hairy, pale to pale brown. Mycelium partly superficial and partly immersed. Conidiophores macronematous, mononematous, single or in small groups, simple or branched, erect, straight, septate, thick walled, smooth, hyaline, narrower at the apex. Conidiogenous cells monophialidic, discrete, de-terminate, terminal, elongate ampulliform, clavate or subcylindrical, the outer ones somewhat curved and ventricose, hyaline, smooth; conidial mass slimy, pale orange. Conidia acrogenous , aseptate, smooth, hyaline, cylindrical, ellipsoidal (Hyde et al. 2020).



Type species: Hyalinostachys cylindrospora C.G. Lin & K.D. Hyde, in Hyde et al., Mycosphere 11(1): 878 (2020)



       Notes: The combined LSU and rpb2 phylogenetic analyses conducted by Hyde et al. (2020) indicated that Hyalinostachys forms a separate clade and sister taxon to Achroiostachys, Globobotrys, Melanopsammaand Sirastachysin Stachybotryaceae. Hyalinostachysis distinguishes itself from these genera by simple or branched, thick-walled, smooth and hyaline conidiophores and hyaline, cylindrical or ellipsoidal conidia (Hyde et al. 2020).
