Type speciesNowamyces globulus Crous, in Crous et al., Stud. Mycol. 94: 210 (2019).

Notes – Two species are accepted in this genus, N. globulus and N. piperitae (Crous et al. 2019a). They are teratosphaeria-like and can be distinguished by molecular data. Crous et al. (2019a) included this genus in Nowamycetaceae. However, Nowamycetaceae is synonymized under Phaeothecoidiellaceae in our study based on phylogenetic analyses (Fig. 3), thus Nowamyces is transferred to Phaeothecoidiellaceae. Crous et al. (2019a) suggested that N. piperitae is plant pathogenic as it was associated with prominent leaf spots. Nowamyces globulus was assumed to be of minor relevance as it was associated with Teratosphaeria nubilosa leaf spots on Eucalyptus globulus.
