Notes – The type species of this genus was originally described by Zhou et al. (2014). However, Thambugala et al. (2015b) resolved the placement of Trematosphaeria terricola and found that it forms an independent lineage in Lophiostomataceae. Therefore, Thambugala et al. (2015b) introduced a new genus Alpestrisphaeria in Lophiostomataceae to accommodate this species.
