Abstract:  All species classified in the genera Ptychogaster Corda and Ceriomyces Corda have been studied. Ptychogaster is now restricted to anamorphs of Postia (Bull. : Fr.) Singer. Sporotrichopsis Stalpers is described for the anamorph of Abortiporus biennis Fr. and Caeruleomyces Stalpers to accomodate Sporotrichum azureum Arx. An annotated check-list of all species ever classified in Ptychogaster and Ceriomyces is given.
