The class Eurotiomycetes is a morphologically and ecologically diverse clade of filamentous ascomycetes (Ascomycota; Pezizomycotina). Based on a series of molecular phylogenetic discoveries, the taxonomic concept has expanded significantly in the past decade. While our phylogenetic knowledge has advanced greatly, we still lack a satisfactorily comprehensive multilocus phylogeny for the group. Eurotiomycetes comprises at least nine orders distributed in three subclasses (Eurotiomycetidae, Chaetothyriomycetidae, Mycocaliciomycetidae), as well as the unresolved coelomycetous taxon Cirrosporium. This chapter will summarize current knowledge of the morphological, ecological, and biological diversity of Eurotiomycetes and place it in an evolutionary and taxonomic context.
