Cladoriella Crous, Stud. Mycol. 55: 54 (2006).

MycoBank number: MB 500799; Index Fungorum number: IF 500799; Facesoffungi number: FoF 07651; 5 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), 4 species with molecular data.

Type species: Cladoriella eucalypti Crous.

Notes: Crous et al. (2006b) introduced Cladoriella to accommodate cladosporium-like species. This genus is similar to Devriesia, but lacks chlamydospores, and produces a distinct red pigment on media. Phylogenetic analyses also support this distinctness as Cladoriella formed a clade apart from Cladosporium complex (Mycosphaerellaceae), Cladophialophora complex (Herpotrichiellaceae), or Pseudocladosporium complex (Venturiaceae) (Crous et al. 2006b) (Fig. 26).
