Notes – The generic concept of Distoseptispora was emended by Yang et al. (2018b) in respect to the characters of D. guttulata and D. suoluoensis, which have erect, macronematous conidiophores, percurrently elongating conidiogenous cells and euseptate conidia. The type of septum does not aid in identification of Distoseptispora species. Acrodictys martini was transferred to Diaporthe martinii (Xia et al. 2017). It differs from all other species in the genus in having muriform, transversally ellipsoid to subglobose brown conidia. Its placement in Distoseptispora was resolved with molecular DNA data. Phylogenetic placement of the genus is shown in Fig. 4. Distoseptispora clematidis was introduced by Phukhamsakda et al. (2020) from Clematis and Luo et al. (2019) introduced D. appendiculata, D. lignicola, D. neorostrata and D. obclavata from submerged wood in Thailand. In this entry we introduce a new species, Distoseptispora rayongensis.
