This chapter studies the genus Naohidea. In asexual reproduction yeast cells are elongate and budding is predominantly polar. Buds frequently develop close to the base of the parent cell and elongate parallel to the parent cell. In sexual reproduction basidiocarps are soft gelatinous, inconspicuous, and film-like. Hyphae have clamp connections but lack haustoria. The basidia are auricularioid (i.e., transversely septate), develop directly from the mycelium (i.e., probasidia are not formed), and are four-celled. This chapter further examines physiology, biochemistry, and phylogenetic placement. The type species mentioned and accepted is Naohidea sebacea. The systematic discussion of the species includes synonyms, growth on 5% malt extract agar, Dalmau plate culture on corn meal agar, sexual state, fermentation, gene sequence accession numbers, cell carbohydrates, origin of the strains studied, type strain, systematics, ecology, biotechnology, and agriculture and food. © 2011
