Type speciesLeprieuria bacillum (Mont.) Læssøe, J.D. Rogers & Whalley

Notes Leprieuria is characterized by cylindrical to rod-shaped stromata, umbilicate, usually 2–10 ostioles per stroma, cylindrical, short-pedicellate asci lacking an apical ring, reniform ascospores glabrous in face view and straight germ slit and a geniculosporium-like asexual morph (see Daranagama et al. 2018). Wendt et al. (2018) accepted Leprieuria in Xylariaceae based on its asexual morph. Molecular analyses are needed to resolve this genus.
