Type species – Paraxylaria rosacearum Wanas., Gafforov, E.B.G. Jones & K.D. Hyde
Notes – Paraxylaria was introduced to accommodate P. rosacearum and is a monotypic genus saprobic on Rosaceae in Uzbekistan (Wanasinghe et al. 2018). The genus was introduced based on morphology similar to Coniocessia. However, species differ as Paraxylaria have asci with J+, apical rings with ascospores which lack germ-slits but have a close affinity in phylogenetic analysis (Wanasinghe et al. 2018).
