NotesParadendryphiella was established to accommodate two species Dendryphiella arenariae and D. salina (= Cercospora salina). The morphological characters of the genus are simple or branched conidiophores with a new head or a short, inconspicuous sympodial rachis and holoblastically produced cylindrical to obclavate, straight or slightly flexuous, 1–7 transverse septa, pale to medium brown conidia. Cultures and sequence data are available however there is no mention of the holotype of the type species or ex-type culture (morphology see Jones et al. 2015, Wijayawardene et al. 2018, outline).
