Cytosporaceae Fr. [as ‘Cytisporei’], Syst. orb. veg. (Lundae) 1: 118 (1825)

Index Fungorum number: IF 82042

Cytosporaceae, introduced by Fries (1825), comprises phytopathogens and saprobes (Wehmeyer 1975, Barr 1978, Eriksson 2001, Castlebury et al. 2002, Senanayake et al. 2018). During the recent treatment, Senanayake et al. (2017) excluded seven genera and accepted only five genera in this family. In the outline of Ascomycota, Wijayawardene et al. (2018) accepted six genera in Cytosporaceae. In the same year, Senanayake et al. (2018) re-examined and added two genera to the family. Among the new inclusions, Hypophloeda was re-positioned in Diaporthales genera incertae sedis as it is atypical of Cytosporaceae (Hyde et al. 2020a).
