NotesCamarosporidiella was established by Wanasinghe et al. (2017a) with C. caraganicola as the type species. Wanasinghe et al. (2017a) accepted 20 species in this genus based on morphological and multi-gene phylogenetic indications. Hyde et al. (2018, 2019) added Camarosporidiella populina and C. mori which were collected from Russia. Species of Camarosporidiella are less-diverse and distributed throughout a broad range of environments especially in Northern Hemisphere. Camarosporidiella species are saprobes, endophytes or pathogens of a wide range of hosts (Wanasinghe et al. 2017a). Species identification based solely on morphology and plant host association is difficult since many species have overlapping characters. The genus is similar to other camarosporium-like genera and distinguishing these genera can be problematic (Wanasinghe et al. 2017a). LSU is useful for preliminary identification at the generic level. It is recommended to use a combination of ITS, LSU, SSU, and tef1 (Wanasinghe et al. 2017a).
