Type speciesDendrophoma cytisporoides Sacc.

NotesDendrophoma was proposed to be synonymous with Dinemasporium as Dendrophoma cytisporoides was related to Dinemasporium graminum (Sutton 1965). However, Crous et al. (2012e) epitypified Dendrophoma cytosporoides and confirmed that it is different from Dinemasporium based on morphological and DNA sequence data. Species of Dendrophoma occur on woody substrates and leaves, while some of them reported as leaf pathogens (Howard & Albregts 1973, Moricca et al. 2016, Spegazzini 1880, Vu et al. 2019). The genus is characterised by stromatic, stipitate, setose conidiomata, discrete, or integrated, lageniform to subcylindrical conidiogenous cells and naviculate to botuliform conidia bearing an unbranched cellular appendage at each end (Crous et al. 2012e).
