Type species – Noosia banksiae Crous, R.G. Shivas & McTaggart, Persoonia 26: 139 (2011).
Notes – Noosia banksiae is only known in its hyphomycetous asexual morph, which is characterized by micronematous conidiophores, lateral and terminal conidiogenous cells with small, pimple-like pores, and dimorphic conidia. Crous et al. (2011a) placed Noosia in Pleosporales, genera incertae sedis, and this treatment was followed by Wijayawardene et al. (2012, 2014b, 2017a, b, 2018). However, phylogenetic analyses indicated that Noosia belongs to Periconiaceae (Tanaka et al. 2015, Liu et al. 2017b, Thambugala et al. 2017b, Crous et al. 2018c,
