Type speciesPararoussoella rosarum Wanas., E.B.G. Jones & K.D. Hyde, in Wanasinghe et al., Fungal Divers. 89: 171 (2018).

Notes – Wanasinghe et al. (2018c) introduced Pararoussoella as a monotypic genus in Thyridariaceae to accommodate a roussoella-like taxon which having solitary, immersed, subglobose to ampulliform ascomata, bitunicate, cylindrical asci, and dark brown, ellipsoidal, 1- septate ascospores, with longitudinal striations. The coelomycetous asexual morph was reported by Crous et al. (2019b) based on P. juglandicola characterized by globose, brown, pycnidial conidiomata, phialidic conidiogenous cells, with periclinal thickening at apex and hyaline to brown, subcylindrical, aseptate conidia. Phookamsak et al. (2019) transferred this genus to Roussoellaceae.
