Sympoventuriaceae Y. Zhang ter, C.L. Schoch & K.D. Hyde

Sympoventuriaceae belongs to the order Venturiales (Dothideomycetes). This family is related to Verruconis and nested within the Sympoventuriaceae. In their natural habitat, fungi from this family commonly occur in soils and decaying plant material (Barron & Busch 1962, Dwivedi 1959). Species are also known as opportunistic vertebrate pathogens (de Hoog et al. 2000, Horré et al. 1999) and can cause infections in humans and animals (Ge et al. 2012, Padhye et al. 1994, Salkin et al. 1990, Singh et al. 2006, see review in Yarita et al. 2007).
