Ambrosiella is a genus of ambrosia fungi within the Ceratocystidaceae family. It was cirumscribed by mycologists Josef Adolph von Arx and Grégoire L. Hennebert in 1965 with Ambrosiella xylebori as the type species.[1] All Ambrosiella species are obligate symbionts of ambrosia beetles. Several former species were moved to Raffaelea or Hyalorhinocladiella [2] and there are currently seven species.[3]
