Lopadostomataceae Daranag. & K.D. Hyde [as ‘Lopadostomaceae’], in Senanayake et al., Fungal Diversity 73: 129 (2015)
Index Fungorum number: IF91005
Lopadostomataceae was introduced by Senanayake et al. (2015) in Xylariales to accommodate Creosphaeria and Lopadostoma. In earlier considerations, Creosphaeria and Lopadostoma had coelomycetous, representatives of libertella-like asexual morphs and were treated as basal clade to Xylariaceae (Tang et al. 2009). At present, the family consists of Creosphaeria, Jumillera, Lopadostoma and Whalleya (Daranagama et al. 2018).
