Pyrenulaceae

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]

Requienellaceae

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]

Sphinctrinaceae

The Sphinctrinaceae are a family of fungi in the order Mycocaliciales. [more]

Strigulaceae

[more]

Trichocomaceae

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]

Trypetheliaceae

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]

Verrucariaceae

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.
