Description: Spores attributed to the fossil form-taxa Mediaverrunites (Elsik, 1976; Nandi and Sinha, 2007) are ascospores of the extant genus Potamomyces (Hyde, 1995). While several types of Mediaverrunites spores are known from fossil material the genus Potamomyces armatisporus (Cai et al., 2006) and a second species provisionally named P. nepalensis only known from its spores (Schlütz and Shumilovskikh, 2013).

(Sub-) Fossil occurence: No information

Co-occurence: In Ela-70, spores with three meridional verrucae of Mediaverrunites pontidiensis (Sancay, 2014) as well as spores of Mediaverrunites elsikii occur. Both groups are aggregated in the diagram under the genus name Mediaverrunites (Potamomyces).

Modern occurence: No information
