Type speciesCrinitospora pulchra B. Sutton & Alcorn

Notes – The asexual caulicolous Crinitospora is monotypic and the sexual morph has not yet been determined (Crous et al. 2014b). The genus was recorded from the leaves of Mangifera indica in Queensland. There are no published data on the ecology and pathology of the genus (Senanayake et al. 2018). Previously the genus was placed in Melanconidaceae (Diaporthales). Maharachchikumbura et al. (2015), Senanayake et al. (2017a, 2018) and Voglmayr et al. (2017) have confirmed the taxonomic placement in Stilbosporaceae. The genus is characterised by coelomycetous conidiomata and hyaline conidia, having several apical appendages which are tubular or filiform, and unbranched.
