Notes – Alloleptosphaeria was introduced as monotypic genus for a saprobic fungal strain found on Clematis vitalba. It is characterized by scattered, immersed to semi-erumpent, globose or subglobose ascomata with yellowish ascospores (see morphology Ariyawansa et al. 2015b, Wijayawardene et al. 2018). The asexual morph of this genus was reported as globose pycnidial with hyaline aseptate conidia (Crous et al. 2018b, Aiello et al. 2020).
