Type species – Neostagonospora caricis Quaedvl., Verkley & Crous, Stud. Mycol. 75: 364 (2013).
Notes – Neostagonospora was introduced by Quaedvlieg et al. (2013) to accommodate stagonospora-like taxa. Neostagonospora caricis and N. elegiae were initially included in this genus. Based on molecular analyses coupled with morphological characteristics, subsequent authors introduced five new species in Neostagonospora (Yang et al. 2016, Thambugala et al. 2017b, Wanasinghe et al. 2018c, Marin-Felix et al. 2019). Wanasinghe et al. (2018c) introduced N. artemisiae from Artemisia austriaca in Russia. Based on a combined LSU, SSU, ITS and tef1 phylogenetic analyses, N. artemisiae clustered with N. elegiae (Wanasinghe et al. 2018c). However, Marin-Felix et al. (2019) transferred N. artemisiae to Septoriella as S. artemisiae based on phylogenetic analyses of a combined ITS and LSU sequences. According to Hyde et al. (2020b) recommendations, we reinstated the species as N. artemisiae until phylogenetic analyses can be resolved phylogenetic status of this species. Thus, there are seven species currently accommodated in this genus.
