Type species – Coniocessia nodulisporioides (D. Hawksw.) Dania García, Stchigel, D. Hawksw. & Guarro
Notes – García et al. (2006) introduced Coniocessia to accommodate C. nodulisporioides, by synonymising Coniochaeta nodulisporioides, isolated from soil in Jordan by Hawksworth (1978). The species was synonymised under Coniocessia, based on morphology and SSU and LSU molecular data. Asgari & Zare (2011) introduced Coniocessiaceae and four new species in Coniocessia based on morphological and ITS and LSU molecular data, as all species clustered into a single monophyletic clade (Asgari & Zare 2011). Maharachchikumbura et al. (2016b) provided an updated outline of the genus with five species.
