Order Sebacinales M. Weiss, Selosse, Rexer, A. Urb. & Oberw.

Mycological Research 108 (9): 1007 (2004)

Type: Sebacina Tul. & C. Tul. 1873

This order now contains two families and eight or more genera. The Tremellodendron growth form arose several times within Sebacina.

  1. Sebacinaceae (Helvellosebacina, Sebacina)
  2. Serendipitaceae (Serendipita)
Taxonomy:
These jelly fungi were formerly in the Auriculariales and also at one time in the Exidiaceae, Tremellales, but DNA phylogeny puts them in a basal position in the Agaricomycetes.
