This chapter studies the genus Occultifur. In asexual reproduction yeast cells are ovoid and budding is predominantly polar. Ballistoconidia are not formed. Visible carotenoid pigments are formed and the cultures are pink to orange in color. In sexual reproduction basidiocarps are not produced. Hyphae with clamp connections and haustoria are formed. Basidia are auricularioid and four-celled and develop directly from the hyphae. This chapter further examines physiology, biochemistry, and phylogenetic placement. The type species mentioned is Occultifur internus. The species accepted are Occultifur corticiorum, Occultifur externus, and Occultifur internus. The systematic discussion of the species includes 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
