Stigmatomyces H. Karst., Chemismus Pfl.-Zelle: 78 (1869)
Laboulbeniomycetes, Laboulbeniomycetidae, Laboulbeniales, Laboulbeniaceae
Index Fungorum number: IF 5253; 148 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2021), 4 species with sequence data.
Generic description: see Li et al. (2008)
Type species – Stigmatomyces muscae (Peyr.) H. Karst.
Notes: After the recent description of Stigmatomyces coronatus (Rossi and Bernardi 2018), the accepted species are 148 distributed in all continents, all occurring on flies (Diptera) with the only exceptions being S. caudicola Speg. and S. euconni F. Picard, two species that certainly do not belong to the genus Stigmatomyces. Stigmatomyces succini is the only known fossil species of the Laboulbeniales reported so far (Rossi et al. 2005). Very few sequences are available for species in the genus. (Adopted from Hyde et al. 2019)
