MycoBank number: MB 25383; Index Fungorum number: IF 25383; Facesoffungi number: FoF 13550; 1 morphological species.
Type species – Lacrymospora parasitica Aptroot
Notes – Lacrymospora 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.
