Type species – Cycasicola goaensis Wanas., E.B.G. Jones & K.D. Hyde, Fungal Divers. 89: 161 (2018).
Notes – Cycasicola was established to accommodate the type species Cycasicola goaensis based on phylogenetic analyses (Wanasinghe et al. 2018c) and it was isolated form petiole of Cycas sp. from India. The genus clustered with Pararoussoella as a single lineage. The genus is characterized by globose, dark brown, unilocular conidiomata with papillate ostiole, phialidic, ampulliform, hyaline conidiogenous cells and fusiform to cylindrical, continuous, hyaline to pale brown, aseptate, guttulate conidia (Wanasinghe et al. 2018c). Jayasiri et al. (2019) introduced the second species C. leucaenae based on morphological distinctiveness and phylogenetic support (Jeewon & Hyde 2016, Jayasiri et al. 2019).
