Type species: Pachythyrium parasiticum (Fabre) G. Arnaud ex Spooner & P.M. Kirk, Mycol. Res. 94(2): 228 (1990).

Bertia parasitica Fabre, Annls Sci. Nat., Bot., sér. 6 9: 95 (1879) [1878].

Notes: Pachythyrium was introduced as a monotypic genus, which is synonymised from Bertia parasitica occurring on Eutypa lata. Hawksworth et al. (1995) and Lumbsch and Huhndorf (2010) accepted it as a member of Microthyriaceae. Wu et al. (2011b) placed it in Trichothyriaceae, and noted that the placement of this genus in Trichothyriaceae may be warranted.
