Notes: Metarhiziopsis was introduced as a monotypic entomopathogenic genus based on morphology and phylogenetic analyses (Li et al. 2008). No sexual morph has been reported. It infects insects producing white to buff, cupulate sporodochia, surrounded by differentiated septate setae, cylindrical, unicellular phialides and unicellular, catenulate conidia (Li et al. 2008).
