Type speciesGreeneria uvicola (Berk. & M.A. Curtis) Punith.

Notes Greeneria was introduced based on G. fuliginea (Scribner & Viala 1887) and synonymized under Melanconium (Cavara 1889) as M. fuligineum. van derAa (1973) placed the genus in Phyllosticta as P. ampelicida. Punithalingam (1974) renamed the taxon as Greeneria uvicola with descriptions and illustrations. LSU rDNA sequence analysis (Farr et al. 2001) showed that G. uvicola belonged in Diaporthales. Senanayake et al. (2017a) reported that G. uvicola and G. saprophytica should be accommodated in Melanconiellaceae. Greeneria saprophytica did not have a close affinity to G. uvicola and this needs further resolution. Greeneria does not have a sexual morph (Zhang & Blackwell 2001). Based on Senanayake et al. (2018), Greeneria now has a single species, G. uvicola.
