Type species: Clavatispora thailandica Boonmee & K.D. Hyde, Phytotaxa 176(1): 96 (2014).

Notes: The genus is characterized by solitary, superficial ascomata, covered by dark setae, with an ostiole, clavate, multi-septate, yellowish to reddish brown ascospores (Boonmee et al. 2014a). It does not resemble other genera in Sympoventuriaceae. However, the LSU sequence data showed that Clavatispora clusters with the hyphomycete genus Scolecobasidiella in Sympoventuriaceae along with Ochroconis, Scolecobasidium, Fusicladium and Veronaeopsis (Boonmee et al. 2014a). The asexual morph of Clavatispora are unique in having 1–3-phragmoseptate, smooth-walled, guttulate conidia, deeply constricted at septa, while other genera have conidia and conidiogenous apparatus which are mostly verrucose to denticulate (Boonmee et al. 2014a).
