≡ Phoma eupyrena Sacc., Michelia 1(no. 5): 525 (1879).
Notes – Juxtiphoma was introduced to accommodate Juxtiphoma eupyrena in Didymellaceae. This species was previously known as Phoma eupyrena, which was introduced by Saccardo (1879) and Boerema et al. (2004) added this species to section Phoma. However, after several revisions (Aveskamp et al. 2009, 2010), Valenzuela-Lopez et al. (2018) moved it to a new genus. There is only one species in this genus (Valenzuela-Lopez et al. 2018).
