MycoBank number: MB 557343; Index Fungorum number: IF 557343; Facesoffungi number: FoF 07808; 1 morphological species (Mapook et al. 2020, Species Fungorum 2020), 1 species with molecular data.
Type species – Neoophiobolus chromolaenae Mapook & K.D. Hyde, in Mapook et al., Fungal Diversity 101: 74 (2020).
Notes – A monotypic genus Neoophiobolus was introduced by Mapook et al. (2020) to accommodate ophiobolus-like taxon. The genus was collected from dead stems of Chromolaena odorata in Thailand. Multi-gene phylogenetic analyses showed that the genus forms a distinct clade with Ophiobolus in Phaeosphaeriaceae (Mapook et al. 2020).
