Type species – Jeremyomyces labinae Crous & R.K. Schumach., in Crous et al., Fungal Systematics and Evolution 3: 88 (2019).
Notes – Crous et al. (2019b) introduced a monotypic sexual genus Jeremyomyces to accommodate angustimassarina-like taxon, collected from twig of Salix alba in Germany. The genus is morphologically distinct from other genera in Phaeosphaeriaceae in having didymosporous, hyaline fusiform ascospores (Crous et al. 2019b). However, the genus is phylogenetically close to Acericola, even though these two genera are very different in morphology (Wanasinghe et al. 2018c, Crous et al. 2019b). Both genera are represented by only a single species. Therefore, more taxon sampling and re-sequencing of the type strains of these two genera are needed to clarify their phylogenetic status.
