Type species – Pachytrype princeps (Penz. & Sacc.) M.E. Barr, J.D. Rogers & Y.M. Ju

Notes – Pachytrype was described by Barr et al. (1993) to accommodate two species, Pachytrype princeps (= Diatrype princeps), species found from an undetermined tree in Java; and Pachytrype graphidioides (= Peroneutypella graphidioides), species found on Terminalia catappa in the Philippines. Pachytrype rimosa was introduced from on a log in Costa Rica (Fernández et al. 2004). The genus is characterised by stroma showing multi-locules perithecial and entostroma with perithecial beaks showing through cracks in the stroma, cylindrical asci with cubical apical ring and hyaline ascospores with ellipsoid to allantoid shaped (Fernández et al. 2004).
