Type speciesMacrohilum eucalypti H.J. Swart

Notes – The monotypic genus Macrohilum was introduced by Swart (1988a) with M. eucalypti, the type species. Macrohilum resembles coniothyrium-like taxa but is phylogenetically distinct as it has a protruding hilum (Crous et al. 2015a, Wijayawardene et al. 2016b). Furthermore, the four base pairs differences observed in their ITS sequences suggest that the New Zealand isolates may probably represent a novel Macrohilum species.
