Scytalidium

I have been doing some reading about the plant pathogenic fungus 
Hendersonula toruloidea (Deuteromycotina, Coelomycetes), and the 
scytalidium state or form-genus has been mentioned.  Is this the same as 
the genus scytalidium that is a mycoparasite on some fungi that cause 
rust diseases in trees?  I guess I'm confused about what is meant by 
form-genus.  Any information would be appreciated.   ----Marianne
