Type species – Phaeomycocentrospora cantuariensis (E.S. Salmon & Wormald) Crous, H.D. Shin & U. Braun, Stud. Mycol. 75: 61 (2013).
≡ Cercospora cantuariensis E.S. Salmon & Wormald, J. Bot., Lond. 61: 134 (1923).
Notes – Phaeomycocentrospora was introduced as a genus incertae sedis of Pleosporales by Crous et al. (2013a) and typified by P. cantuariensis based on morphology and molecular evidence. Morphologically Phaeomycocentrospora is similar to Pseudocercospora, however, the two genera can be distinguished based on the hyaline hyphae, broad conidiogenous loci and hila of conidia (Crous et al. 2013a). Previously, Phaeomycocentrospora was placed in Didymellaceae following the phylogenetic analysis of Trakunyingcharoen et al. (2014), however, phylogenetic studies of Marin-Felix et al. (2017), Valenzuela-Lopez et al. (2018) and Senwanna et al. (2019) have shown that Phaeomycocentrospora is not closely related to Didymellaceae and groups within Dothidotthiaceae.
