Type species – Diaporthostoma machili X.L. Fan & C.M. Tian
Notes – Diaporthostoma was introduced by Fan et al. (2018) to accommodate Diaporthostoma machili as the type species, which was collected from twigs and branches of Machilus leptophylla in China. Diaporthostoma machili is characterized by scattered, conical perithecia and fusoid, straight to curved ascospores with a median septum (Fan et al. 2018, Senanayake et al. 2018). No asexual morph is known for this species. Diaporthostoma comprises only the type species (Index Fungorum 2020). In this entry we illustrate Diaporthostoma machili.
