MycoBank number: MB 557347; Index Fungorum number: IF 557347; Facesoffungi number: FoF 07810; 2 morphological species (Mapook et al. 2020), 2 species with molecular data.
Type species – Paraleptospora chromolaenae Mapook & K.D. Hyde, in Mapook et al., Fungal Diversity 101: 76 (2020).
Notes – Paraleptospora was introduced by Mapook et al. (2020) and is typified by P. chromolaenae. Paraleptospora is similar to Leptospora in producing pigments tinted the host surface. However, the genus forms a separate clade with Leptospora and is sister to Acericola, Jeremyomyces and Xenophoma in Phaeosphaeriaceae.
