NotesBahusandhika is a  torula-like genus characterized by blastic, sphaerical, ovoid, ampulliform conidiogenous cells and catenate, fusiform, cylindrical or rhomboidal, phragmoseptate conidia. Pratibha et al. (2014) placed Bahusandhika in Pleosporales based on ITS and LSU sequence data. Later, Latorua Crous was synonymized under Bahusandhika by Crane & Miller (2016) on the basis of morphology. However, Liu et al. (2018c) suggested to treat them as distinct genera based on phylogenetic analyses, and they pointed out that more sequence data were needed to examine the monophyly of Bahusandhika.
