Notes – Crous et al. (2015c) introduced Neoplatysporoides aloicola on leaf litter of Aloe sp. in Tanzania. Neoplatysporoides is also associated with tip dieback of Aloe ferox (Crous et al. 2015c). This genus differs from Libertasomyces in having golden brown conidia that are subcylindrical to ellipsoid, 0–1-septate, and constricted at median septum, while Libertasomyces has hyaline, granular, ellipsoid, widest in middle, aseptate or muriformly septate conidia. Two species, N. aloes and N. aloicola are known for the genus (Crous et al. 2015c, 2019e).
