Diaporthaceae, introduced by von Höhnel (1917), comprises many endophytic and phytopathogenic fungal species (Udayanga et al. 2012, Hyde et al. 2020a). This family has been subjected to critical revisions over the years (Maharachchikumbura et al. 2015, 2016, Senanayake et al. 2017, Hyde et al. 2020a, Wijayawardene et al. 2020). In most recent treatments, 15 genera are accepted in Diaporthaceae (Hyde et al. 2020a, Wijayawardene et al. 2020).
