Type speciesBambusistroma didymosporum D.Q. Dai & K.D. Hyde, Cryptogamie Mycologie 36: 123 (2015).

NotesBambusistroma is a monotypic genus characterized by its subglobose, uniloculate ascomata, 8-spored, bitunicate, cylindrical asci with a short furcate pedicel and a shallow ocular chamber, and 2–3-seriate, hyaline, fusiform, 1-septate ascospores surrounding by a mucilaginous sheath (Adamčík et al. 2015). Asexual morph is unknown. Bambusistroma was originally placed in Massarinaceae by Adamčík et al. (2015). However, this genus was placed in Periconiaceae in several molecular studies (Tanaka et al. 2015, Phukhamsakda et al. 2016, 2017, Thambugala et al. 2017b).
