Type species: Macrophomina philippinensis Petr., Annls mycol. 21(3/4): 314 (1923).

Notes: Macrophomina comprises two species with cultures and moleular data. This genus is similar to Tiarosporella in having apical mucoid appendages (Sutton and Marasas 1976). Apart from the phylogeny, these two species can be distinguished, since Macrophomina has percurrently proliferating conidiogenous cells (Nag-Raj 1993; Crous et al. 2006a) and conidia that become dark brown at maturity, and microsclerotia (Phillips et al. 2013).
