Type species – Neobyssosphaeria clematidis Wanas., Phukhams., E.B.G. Jones & K.D. Hyde, in Phukhamsakda et al., Fungal Divers 102: 57 (2020).
Notes – Neobyssosphaeria was recently established as a monotypic genus from Clematis vitalba with sexual morph, but the asexual morph is unknown (Phukhamsakda et al. 2020). This genus resembles Byssosphaeria in having an orange apex (Zhang et al. 2012b, Hyde et al. 2013, 2018, Tian et al. 2015, Phukhamsakda et al. 2020). However, Neobyssosphaeria is distinguished by its immersed ascomata with periphysate ostioles, cellular pseudoparaphyses and broad fusiform and hyaline ascospores. Phylogenetic analyses indicate that it should be separated from Byssosphaeria in Melanommataceae (Phukhamsakda et al. 2020).
