    Cornipulvina ellipsoides is described as a new genus and species in the family Boliniaceae, order Boliniales and Erythromada lanciospora is described as a new genus and species in the Sordariomycetidae. Cornipulvina is distinguished by irregular stromata with long rostrate necks and ellipsoid ascospores lacking a germ pore. Erythromada differs from similar scolecosporous genera in its superficial, clustered, ovoid ascomata and its nonseptate. wider ascospores. Phylogenetic analyses of nuclear 28S large subunit (LSU) sequences supports the establishment of both genera.
