Type speciesCiferriella domingensis Petr. & Cif., Annls mycol. 28(5/6): 409 (1930).

Notes – Quaedvlieg et al. (2013) treated Ciferriella as a synonym of Pseudocercospora based on morphological characteristics and the type species of Ciferriella also occurred on Vitex, typically Pseudocercospora (Quaedvlieg et al. 2013). However, the generic type of Ciferriella lacks molecular data to confirm their congeneric with Pseudocercospora. Therefore, we tentative listed the genus in doubtful genere in Mycosphaerellaceae until the molecular data of the generic type is obtained to confirm its phylogenetic placement.
