NotesAquimassariosphaeria was introduced by Dong et al. (2020) for Massariosphaeria typhicola and a new species A. kunmingensisto to distinguish it from Neomassariosphaeria in Amniculicolaceae. Aquimassariosphaeria species were isolated from freshwater habitats (Dong et al. 2020) and terrestrial habitats (Leuchtmann 1984). Aquimassariosphaeria differs from other genera in Lindgomycetaceae in having ascomata without a clypeus, and narrowly fusiform or vermiform, brown to dark brown, >3 transversely septate ascospores, without longitudinal or oblique septa.
