The Orbilia are a genus of fungi in the family Orbiliaceae. Anamorphs of this genus include the Arthrobotrys, Dactylella, Dicranidion, Dwayaangam, Helicoön, Monacrosporium, and Trinacrium.[1] The taxon was established in 1849 by Fries to accommodate the species Peziza leucostigma.[2] The mycologist Velenovský wrote articles describing species found in Bohemia and Moravia (Czechoslovakia).[3][4] In 1951, Seaver recorded 20 species in North America[5], and Dennis later described 9 species from Venezuela[6]
