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 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 stroma, cylindrical asci with cubical apical ring and hyaline ascospores with ellipsoid to allantoid shaped (Fernández et al. 2004).
