Type species – Fissuroma maculans (Rehm) Jian K. Liu, E.B.G. Jones & K.D. Hyde, Fungal Divers. 51(1): 145 (2011).
≡ Metasphaeria maculans Rehm, Philipp. j. sci. 8 (5): 401 (1913).
Notes – Fissuroma is typified by F. maculans (Liu et al. 2011). Fissuroma species have been reported from numerous hosts such as Arenga westerhoutii, bamboo, Borassus flabellifer, Calamus rotang and Hedychium coronarium, and are widely distributed (Phookamsak et al. 2015b, Niranjan & Sarma 2018, Tennakoon et al. 2018c, Wanasinghe et al. 2018a). The coelomycetous pleurophomopsis-like asexual morph was reported for F. aggregata with globose to subglobose conidiomata, phialidic conidiogenous cells and hyaline, globose conidia (Tanaka & Harada 2005a). Phookamsak et al. (2015b) showed Fissuroma bambusae formed a coelomycetous asexual morph on MEA, which differs from F. aggregata in having oblong conidia.
