Type speciesNeoconiothyrium persooniae Crous, Persoonia 39: 379 (2017).

Notes – Crous et al. (2017) revealed Neoconiothyrium as a new genus. Lacking conidiomata and covered in setae and medium brown, finely verruculose, ellipsoid to subclavate, aseptate, becoming cylindrical and at times 1-septate, apex subobtuse, base bluntly rounded conidia make Neoconiothyrium different from Coniothyrium hakeae.
