Type species – Paramassariosphaeria clematidicola Wanas., Camporesi, E.B.G. Jones & K.D. Hyde, Biology 120(11): 1370 (2016).
Notes – Paramassariosphaeria was introduced by Wanasinghe et al. (2016b) to accommodate Paramassariosphaeria clematidicola as the type species, which was collected from Clematis vitalba (Ranunculaceae). Paramassariosphaeria species are characterized in having immersed to semi-erumpent ascomata, with papillate ostioles, cylindric-clavate asci with a long pedicel, and curved-fusoid, asymmetrical ascospores, narrowly rounded at the ends and surrounded by a mucilaginous sheath (Wanasinghe et al. 2016b).
