Haustorial branches are described and illustrated in Filobasidiella depauperata (Basidiomycota: Tremellales). Their close association with hyphae of Verticillium lecanii indicates that F. depauperata is mycoparasitic and not, as previously thought, entomopathogenic. A key to the taxa of the genus is included.
