Type species – Parasarocladium radiatum (Sukapure & Thirum.) Summerb., J.A. Scott, Guarro & Crous
Notes – Parasarocladium was introduced for Acremonium species that formed a sister clade with Sarocladium sensu stricto (Crous et al. 2018b, Summerbell et al. 2018). The genus is distinguished from Sarocladium by branched tufts of up to four conidiophores and the homologues characteristic of CAACTTT motif at 5’ end of 5.8S rDNA (Summerbell et al. 2018).
