Notes   –   Phookamsak   et   al.   (2014c)   re-circumscribed   Ampelomyces   and  accepted Ampelomyces in Phaeosphaeriaceae based on the type species, A. quisqualis (CBS 129.79) which was sister to Neosetophoma in their analyses. However, the representative strain CBS 129.79, identified as A. quisqualis is not the type strain and this study, A. quisqualis clustered with other Neosetophoma species. Therefore, the generic status of Ampelomyces is still questionable pending further studies. More taxon sampling and recollection and epitypification of the type species are required.
