Type species: Paramicrothyrium chinensis H.X. Wu & K.D. Hyde [as ‘chinensis’], in Wu et al., Fungal Diversity 51(1): 204 (2011).
Notes: Paramicrothyrium was introduced with a single species Paramicrothyrium chinensis, which is characterized by irregular ostioles without a darkened ring. However, the sequence data of the type species is questionable, as it does not cluster with the main clade of Microthyriales.
