Type speciesNeoophiosphaerella sasicola (Nagas. & Y. Otani) Kaz. Tanaka & K. Hiray., Stud. Mycol. 82: 101 (2015).

Phaeosphaeria sasicola Nagas. & Y. Otani, Rep. Tottori Mycol. Inst. 15: 39 (1977).

NotesNeoophiosphaerella has similar morphology to Ophiosphaerella, but they phylogenetically group in different suborders. Also, Ophiosphaerella has globose to subglobose ascomata with a papillate ostiolar neck (Phookamsak et al. 2014c), whereas Neoophiosphaerella has hemisphaerical ascomata without papilla but covered by clypei (Tanaka et al. 2015).
