The Eurotiomycetes is a class of ascomycetes within the subphylum Pezizomycotina.
Some members of the Eurotiomycetes were previously grouped in the class Plectomycetes.
The scientific classification for this particular class is particularly tricky, with one particular species having both the anamorph, and teleomorph names used in reference to them.
- e.g. Anamorph Form= Penicillium; Teleomorph Form= Talaromyces Eupenicillium
- Produce a cleistothecium through which they distribute their spores.
The Class Eurotiomycetes is further organized into finer groupings including:
- Subclass (3): Chaetothyriomycetidae · Eurotiomycetidae · Mycocaliciomycetidae
- Order (9): Ascosphaerales · Chaetothyriales · Chaetothyriomycetes · Coryneliales · Eurotiales · Mycocaliciales · Onygenales · Pyrenulales · Verrucariales
- Species: ZipcodeZoo has pages for 5,582 species and subspecies in the Class Eurotiomycetes.
