NotesDendryphiella is an asexual morph genus. It was established by Ranojevic (1914) with D. interseminata as type species. The genus is placed in Dictyosporiaceae. It is characterized by macronematous conidiophores with polytretic, integrated conidiogenous cells at the swollen tip and at intercalary swellings and catenate or solitary conidia (Ellis 1971, Matsushima 1971, Rai & Kamal 1986, Guo & Zhang 1999, Crous et al. 2014a, 2016a). Liu et al. (2017c) updated the taxonomy of this genus and recently several new species were added to this genus (Hyde et al. 2018, Iturrieta-González et al. 2018, Crous et al. 2019a).
