MycoBank number: MB 28310; Index Fungorum number: IF 28310; Facesoffungi number: FoF 10526; 2 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), 1 species with sequence data.
Type species – Crassochaeta nigrita (Sacc.) Réblová
Notes – Crassochaeta nigrita is characterized by tuberculate ascomata surrounded by needle- shaped setae, cylindrical asci and subglobose to ellipsoid, versicolored ascospores. The asexual morph was reported as arthrinium-like Réblová (1999d). The phylogeny based on LSU sequence data of C. nigrita was provided by Huhndorf et al. (2004a) and reveals a close relationship of Crassochaeta to Chaetosphaerella within Chaetosphaerellaceae (same results in Fig. 11).
