Fibulobasidium inconspicuum is a fungus which was described by Bandoni 1979. Fibulobasidium inconspicuum included in the genus Fibulobasidium and family Sirobasidiaceae. The name Fibulobasidium comes from a concatenation of the latin 'fibula' meaning buckle or clasp, and 'basidium' refering to the development of some basidia from clamp loops.
Basidiocarps of Fibulobasidium are gelatinous, pulvinate and anastomosing. The hyphae are branched and show clamp connections. Basidia are tremelloid and in chains. The structure of the pores is not known. No subspecies are listed in the Catalogue of Life.
Fibulobasidium inconspicuum was sequenced as part of the 1000 Fungal genomes project - a project aimed at sequencing unsampled fungal diversity.
