Notes: Neohelicosporium was established based on phylogenetic and morphological evidence. Lu et al. (2018b) accepted 22 species in this genus. Neohelicosporium differs from Helicosporium in having acrogenous and/or acropleurogenous conidia developing from an integrated, sympodial conidiogenous cells while Helicosporium species have pleurogenous conidia and discrete, determinate conidiogenous cells (Lu et al. 2018a, b).
