MycoBank number: MB 11074; Index Fungorum number: IF 11074; Facesoffungi number: FoF 06641; 5 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), 4 species with molecular data.
Type species – Dissoconium aciculare de Hoog, Oorschot & Hijwegen.
Notes – Dissoconium was introduced by de Hoog et al. (1983) based on D. aciculare. Crous et al. (2004) indicated that the type of Dissoconium, D. aciculare, clustered together with Mycosphaerella communis (now as Uwebraunia communis) and M. lateralis isolates. However, the type species D. aciculare formed a distinct clade in Capnodiales and was not close to Mycosphaerellaceae (Crous et al. 2009c, Hyde et al. 2013). We provide a drawing of Dissoconium aciculare in Fig. 10 as we were unable to find a fresh collection.
