Type speciesDictyochaetopsis apicalis (Berk. & M.A. Curtis) Aramb. & Cabello

Notes – Arambarri & Cabello (1990) established Dictyochaetopsis based on D. apicalis to accommodate species producing lateral phialides. Species of the genus are characterised by macronematous, setiform conidiophores with fertile or sterile apices; discrete (rarely integrated), monophialidic or rarely polyphialidic conidiogenous cells occurring on the conidiophore or on lateral branches and, fusoid to cylindrical, 0-multiseptate, hyaline conidia (Arambarri & Cabello 1990, Whitton et al. 2000). Whitton et al. (2000) synonymized Codinaeopsis under Dictyochaetopsis. Seifert et al. (2011) did not accept Codinaeopsis and Dictyochaetopsis as valid genera. However, Lin et al. (2019a) treated Dictyochaetopsis as a distinct genus in Chaetosphaeriaceae and is followed here.
