Index Fungorum number: IF561099
Sexual morph: Ascomata on submerged wood, immersed to erumpent in the substrate, globose to subglobose, membranous, black, ostiolate. Neck short, dark brown. Hamathecium composed of globose, hyaline, deliquescent cells. Asci unitunicate, broadly cylindrical, thin-walled, short-pedicellate, lacking an apical pore and other apical structures, eight-spored, uniseriate.

Notes: Riomyces was introduced by Ferrer et al. (2012) to accommodate a single species R. rotundus, based on morphology and phylogenetic analyses of LSU sequence data. It was found on submerged decaying wood in freshwater in Costa Rica
