A Class in the Kingdom Fungi.
The Class Eurotiomycetes is a member of the Phylum Ascomycota. Here is the complete "parentage" of Eurotiomycetes:
- Domain: Eukaryota
Whittaker & Margulis,1978 - eukaryotes
- Kingdom: Fungi T.L. Jahn & F.F. Jahn, 1949 ex R.T. Moore, 1980 - Fungi
The Class Eurotiomycetes is further organized into finer groupings including:
- Family (18): Arthrodermataceae · Ascosphaeraceae · Chaetothyriaceae · Coryneliaceae · Elaphomycetaceae · Gymnoascaceae · Herpotrichiellaceae · Monascaceae · Monoblastiaceae · Mycocaliciaceae · Onygenaceae · Pyrenulaceae · Requienellaceae · Sphinctrinaceae · Strigulaceae · Trichocomaceae · Trypetheliaceae · Verrucariaceae
- Species: ZipcodeZoo has pages for 5,582 species and subspecies in the Class Eurotiomycetes.
The Arthrodermataceae are a family of fungi containing three dermatophytes -- genera Epidermophyton, Microsporum and Trichophyton. [more]
The Chaetothyriaceae are a family of ascomycetous fungi within the order Chaetothyriales and within the class Eurotiomycetes. [more]
The Elaphomycetaceae are a family of the Eurotiales fungi. The family contains two genera and 27 species. [more]
The Gymnoascaceae are a family of fungi in the Ascomycota, class Eurotiomycetes. [more]
The Herpotrichiellaceae are a family of ascomycetous fungi within the order Chaetothyriales and within the class Eurotiomycetes. [more]
The Monoblastiaceae are a lichenized family of fungi in the order Pyrenulales. The taxonomical placement of this poorly-understood family is still uncertain and awaits verification from molecular data. [more]
The Mycocaliciaceae are a family of fungi in the order Mycocaliciales. [more]
The Onygenaceae are a family of fungi in the Ascomycota, class Eurotiomycetes. [more]
The Pyrenulaceae are a family of fungi in the order Pyrenulales. The family was first named by German botanist Gottlob Ludwig Rabenhorst in 1870. Species in the family have a widespread distribution, but are especially prevalent in the tropics, where they grow lichenized with green algae on bark. [more]
The Requienellaceae are a family of fungi in the order Pyrenulales. Species in this family have a widespread distribution, and grow on wood and bark. [more]
The Sphinctrinaceae are a family of fungi in the order Mycocaliciales. [more]
Trichocomaceae is a family of the order Eurotiales. Taxa are saprobes with aggressive colonization strategies, adaptable to extreme environmental conditions. Family members are cosmopolitan in distribution, ubiquitous in soil and very common associates of decaying plant and food material. The family contains some of the most familiar fungi, such as Penicillium and Aspergillus. [more]
The Trypetheliaceae are a family of mainly lichenised fungi with an uncertain taxonomic placement in the class Dothideomycetes, and the sole representative of the order Trypetheliales. According to a 2008 estimate, the family contains 13 genera and 192 species. [more]
The Verrucariaceae are a family of lichenized fungi in the order Verrucariales. [more]
At least 3,038 species and subspecies belong to the Family Verrucariaceae.
