Type speciesKylindria triseptata (Matsush.) DiCosmo, S.M. Berch & W.B. Kendr.

NotesKylindria was erected by DiCosmo et al. (1983) with the type species K. triseptatum (≡Cylindrotrichum   triseptatum)   and   another   four   Cylindrotrichum   species.   Based   on   the phylogenetic analyses of a combine ITS, LSU, SSU dataset, Réblová et al. (2011) show that Kylindria should be accommodated in Reticulascaceae instead of Chaetosphaeriaceae. Maharachchikumbura et al. (2015, 2016b) confirmed Kylindria belongs to Reticulascaceae based on the phylogenetic analyses of a combine LSU, SSU, tef1 and rpb2 dataset. Two species were introduced by Maharachchikumbura et al. (2018b). The genus is characterized by setiform, branched and septate conidiophores, monophialidic conidiogenous cells and septate, oblong- ellipsoid with hyaline conidia (Maharachchikumbura et al. 2016b, 2018b).
