Boeremia Aveskamp, Gruyter & Verkley 2010

The genus is widespread and contains around 10 species, some of them plant pathogens, like Boeremia exigua, which infect a variety of crops.

The asexual fruiting structures (conidiomata) are often spherical and 75 to 370 μm in diameter. The conidia have variable shapes and are mainly aseptate. They measure 2.5-12 x 2-4 µm. Pseudothecia producing ascospores have been observed in one species.

Type species: Boeremia exigua
