Type speciesGraphostroma platystomum (Schwein.) Piroz.

Notes – Pirozynski (1974) erected Graphostroma for Sphaeria platystoma with nodulisporium-like asexual morph. The combination of nodulisporium-like asexual morph and a diatrypaceae-like sexual morph having allantoid ascospores are considered as characteristic of Graphostromataceae with the type species Graphostroma platystomum (Barr et al. 1993). Phylogenetic analyses by Daranagama et al. (2018), and Wendt et al. (2018) confirmed that Graphostroma clustered with Biscogniauxia and Camillea in Graphostromataceae.
