Notes – Phaeoseptum species were reported in freshwater habitats. However, Phukhamsakda et al. (2019a) introduced a third species into the genus, Phaeoseptum mali, as a saprobe from dead wood. Dayarathne et al. (2020) introduced two new species P. carolshearerianum and P. manglicola which were collected from decaying mangrove wood. Most recently, Wanasinghe et al. (2020a) introduced Phaeoseptum hydei on a dead twig of Delonix regia from Chiang Mai, Thailand.
