Abstract A complilation of anamorphic names for both Ascomycota and Basidiomycota is provided which compises 2873 genera. The genera are listed against a backbone of teleomorphic relationships where known. The study reveals that 699 genera and 94 anamorph-like genera are linked to teleomorphic genera names, 447 genera (one anamorph-like genus) are linked to teleomorph families, orders or classes, while for more than 1728 (60.15%) genera no teleomorph link is known.
Keywords Asexual fungi – life cycle – sexual fungi – taxonomy
