The Eurotiomycetes are a class of ascomycetes within the subphylum Pezizomycotina.

Some members of the Eurotiomycetes were previously grouped in the class Plectomycetes.

Nomenclature[edit]

The scientific classification for this particular class is particularly tricky, with one particular species having both the anamorph, and teleomorph names used in reference to them.

Morphology[edit]

They produce a cleistothecium through which they distribute their spores.
