Clypeophysalospora H.J. Swart, Trans. Br. mycol. Soc. 76(1): 93 (1981)

MycoBank number: MB 1121; Index Fungorum number: IF 1121; Facesoffungi number: FoF 06867; 1 species with sequence data.

Type speciesClypeophysalospora latitans (Sacc.) H.J. Swart

Notes – Kang et al. (1999c) considered Clypeosphaeria to be similar with Clypeophysalospora, and C. latitans was accommodated in Clypeosphaeriaceae. Senanayake et al. (2015) used LSU and ITS sequence data of C. uniseptata to consider the affinity of this family with Amphisphaeriales. The concept of Clypeosphaeriaceae (based on C. uniseptata; Senanayake et al. 2015) was not followed in Jaklitsch et al. (2016a). Giraldo et al. (2017a) included the sequence of C. uniseptata in a LSU analysis and this species is not related at the family level with Clypeophysalospora latitans, and therefore they introduced a new family to accommodate the latter
