Type species – Brunneofusispora sinensis S. K. Huang & K. D. Hyde, Fungal Divers. 95(1): 38 (2019).
Notes – Brunneofusispora was placed within Occultibambusaceae as an independent clade by multi-gene analysis, and it also differs from other genera in morphology. Brunneofusispora is similar to Neooccultibambusa in forming globose to subglobose ascomata, but it differs from the latter in having a long prominent neck (Doilom et al. 2017, Phookamsak et al. 2019). Brunneofusispora can be distinguished from Seriascoma as the latter forms clypeate, multi-loculate ascostromata (Dai et al. 2017). Brunneofusispora differs from Occultibambusa as it forms a long beak in ascomata, while the latter has a short ostiole and papilla (Dai et al. 2017, Phooksmsak et al. 2019). In a recent study, Wanasinghe et al. (2020b) amended the generic description in order to accommodate its coelomycetous asexual morph. See Wanasinghe et al. (2020b) for more details.
