Type speciesLacrymospora parasitica Aptroot

NotesLacrymospora is distinguished from Parapyrenis by blackening of the thallus around the ascomata (Aptroot 1991) and asymmetrical ascospores with several rows of granules, indicating septation (Calatayud et al. 2001). The generic position is still doubtful, and fresh collections are needed to understand the taxonomic status and provide support as a separate genus.
