Type speciesAlloneottiosporina carolinensis Nag Raj, Coelomycetous Anamorphs with Appendage-bearing Conidia (Ontario): 122 (1993).

Notes – The coelomycetous asexual genus Alloneottiosporina was introduced by Nag Raj (1993) to accommodate the fungal parasites occurring on living leaves of bamboo and Paspalum distichum in North America and Australia (Nag Raj 1993). Alloneottiosporina is morphologically similar to Neottiosporina, Stagonospora, Tiarospora and Tiarosporella. However, the genus is unique in having gregarious or confluent, elongate, pycnidial conidiomata, immersed to semi- immersed along axis, forming micro- and marcroconidia, with hyaline, varied in shape, septate conidia, with tentaculiform or widely flared mucoid appendages at both ends (Li et al. 2020b). The genus is poorly known due to lack of molecular data for the type species. Li et al. (2020b) introduced a new species Alloneottiosporina thailandica based on a comparison of morphology that fits well with the generic concept of Alloneottiosporina. Multi-gene phylogeny showed that the species is sister to Setophoma. Therefore, Li et al. (2020b) tentative placed the genus in Phaeosphaeriaceae.
