Index Fungorum number: IF 553871; Facesoffungi number: FoF 03777


Saprobic on submerged decaying wood. Sexual morph: Ascomata superficial, uniloculate, solitary, sometimes grouped, subglobose, dark-brown to black, lacking setae. Peridium comprising several layers of brown to dark brown cells of textura angularis. Hamathecium comprising numerous filiform, septate, hyaline pseudoparaphyses. Asci 8- spored, bitunicate, broad cylindrical, rounded at apex, pedicellate, sometimes sessile. Ascospores cylindric-fusiform, slightly curved, tapering towards rounded ends, 6–7-septate, guttulate when immature, hyaline, smooth-walled. Asexual morph: Undetermined. (Chaiwan et al. 2017)


Type species: Neotubeufia krabiensis Chaiwan, Boonmee, Y.Z. Lu & K.D. Hyde


Notes: The monotypic genus Neotubeufia was introduced by Chaiwan et al. (2017) for a freshwater sexual species N. krabiensis producing superficial, glabrous ascomata, cylindrical asci and fasciculate ascospores. Neotubeufia formed a distinct clade in Tubeufiaceae (Chaiwan et al. 2017; Lu et al. 2018b).
