The Endomycetaceae are a family of yeasts in the order Saccharomycetales. According to the 2007 Outline of Ascomycota, the family contains three genera; however, the placement of the genus Phialoascus is uncertain.[1] Species in this poorly understood family have cosmopolitan distributions, and typically grow in association with other fungi, perhaps parasitically.[2]
