NotesNeoascochyta was introduced by Chen et al. (2015) to accommodate taxa which are morphologically similar but phylogenetically distinct from Ascochyta. They have fusoid to cylindrical, obclavate-ovoid to ellipsoidal aseptate or single septate conidia and cylindrical to ovoid, or ellipsoidal single septate ascospores (Chen et al. 2015).
