Notes – Species in Neomassarina were collected from dead leaves or stems from terrestrial habitat in Thailand. Neomassarina is phylogenetically close to Angustimassarina (Amorosiaceae). They are similar in having cylindrical to cylindric-clavate asci with an ocular chamber and hyaline, mostly uniseptate ascospores constricted at the septum with a mucilaginous sheath (Thambugala et al. 2015b, Hyde et al. 2016, 2018, Tibpromma et al. 2017, Mapook et al. 2020). However, appendages of ascospores are observed only in Neomassarina. Angustimassarina might be fungicolous as it appeared to grow inside other ascomata (Thambugala et al. 2015b, Tibpromma et al. 2017).
