Type species – Paradevriesia americana (Crous & Dugan) Crous, Fungal Systematics and Evolution 3: 98 (2019).
≡ Devriesia americana Crous & Dugan, Stud. Mycol. 58: 42 (2007).
Notes – Paradevriesia was established by Crous et al. (2019b) based on phylogenetic analyses and a different ecology to members of Devriesia. This genus is similar to Devriesia sensu stricto which usually occurs in soil, and is thermotolerant. However, Paradevriesia species are found on plants and rock surfaces and are not thermotolerant. Three strains of Paradevriesia clustered within Extremaceae in our phylogenetic analyses (Fig. 3). This genus is characterized by macro- and micronematous conidiophores, blastic, medium brown, guttulate, subcylindrical conidiogenous cells with scars, and catenate, subcylindrical to narrowly ellipsoidal, septate conidia with a hilum (Crous et al. 2019b).
Figure 3 – Phylogram generated from maximum likelihood analysis (RAxML) of Capnodiales based on ITS, LSU and rpb-2 sequence data. Maximum likelihood bootstrap values equal or above 70 %, Bayesian posterior probabilities equal or above 0.90 (MLBS/PP) are given at the nodes. An original isolate number is noted after the species name. The tree is rooted to Elsinoe phaseoli (CBS 165.31). The ex-type strains are indicated in bold. Hyphen (-) represents support values below 70 % MLBS and 0.90 PP.
