Type species – Edenia gomezpompae M.C. González, Anaya, Glenn, Saucedo & Hanlin, Mycotaxon 101: 254 (2007).
Notes – Edenia was introduced to accommodate an endophytic hyphomycete isolated from leaves of Callicarpa acuminata in Mexico. González et al. (2007) provided a sequence of ITS region and treated the genus in Pleosporaceae without phylogenetic analysis support. Crous et al. (2009a) re-circumscribed the genus based on a collection from symptomatic leaves of Senna alata in Philippines and designated this collection as an epitype of Edenia gomezpompae. Crous et al. (2009a) reported a synanamorph of E. gomezpompae sporulating in culture as a pyronellea-like coelomycete and confirmed its phylogenetic affinity in Phaeosphaeriaceae. In this study, the sexual morph of E. gomezpompae is reported on decaying twigs from India for the first time.
