MycoBank number: MB 557279; Index Fungorum number: IF 557279; Facesoffungi number: FoF 07783; 5 morphological species (Mapook et al. 2020), 5 species with molecular data.
Type species – Chromolaenicola nanensis Mapook & K.D. Hyde, Fungal Diversity 101: 25 (2020).
Notes – Chromolaenicola was introduced by Mapook et al. (2020) to accommodate Chromolaenicola nanensis (type species) and four other species, C. chiangraiensis, C. lampangensis, C. siamensis, and C. thailandensis. Chromolaenicola shows close phylogenetic affinities with Cylindroaseptospora, but it has oblong or oval to ellipsoid, globose to subglobose conidia that are hyaline to pale brown, aseptate when immature, becoming dark at maturity, 1- septate, thick-walled, verruculose, not constricted at the septum, whereas, Cylindroaseptospora has cylindrical conidia, hyaline, aseptate with smooth thin walls (Jayasiri et al. 2019).
