Type species – Neoastrosphaeriella krabiensis Jian K. Liu, E.B.G. Jones & K.D. Hyde, in Liu et al., Fungal Divers. 51(1): 148 (2011).
Notes – Neoastrosphaeriella was established by Liu et al. (2011) to accommodate N. krabiensis. The holotype specimen was isolated from petiole of the palm Metroxylon sagu in Thailand. Neoastrosphaeriella clustered in a sister group within Aigialaceae based on molecular analyses (Liu et al. 2011, Liu et al. 2017a, Wanasinghe et al. 2018a). Five Neoastrosphaeriella species have been recorded viz. N. alankrithabeejae, N. aquatica, N. krabiensis, N. phoenicis and N. sribooniensis (Niranjan & Sarma 2018, Liu et al. 2011, Wanasinghe et al. 2018a).
