Type species – Palmiascoma gregariascomum Phookamsak & K.D. Hyde, Fungal Divers. 72: 65 (2015).
Notes – Palmiascoma was introduced by Liu et al. (2015) and was accommodated in Bambusicolaceae with P. gregariascomum as type species. The genus shares similar morphology close to Munkovalsaria, Didymosphaeria and Verruculina in having didymosporous, brown and echinulate ascospores. Palmiascoma differs from Bambusicola species in having ellipsoidal, dark brown, echinulate ascospores with broad cellular pseudoparaphyses. The asexual morph was reported as coelomycetous (Liu et al. 2015, Wijayawardene et al. 2018).
