Type speciesMycocentrospora acerina (R. Hartig) Deighton, Taxon 21(5-6): 716 (1972).

Cercospora acerina R. Hartig, Untersuch. Forstbot. Inst. München 1: 59 (1880).

NotesMycocentrospoara was established by Deighton (1972) to accommodate Mycocentrospora acerina. Mycocentrospoara was proposed as pseudocercospora-like in having coloured secondary mycelium, conidiophores and conidia (Deighton 1971, 1973). Crous et al. (2019b) included Mycocentrospoara in Dothidotthiaceae based on molecular phylogenetic studies. There are 12 species listed in Index Fungorum (2020), but only Mycocentrospora acerina has molecular data.
