Type species – Phialophoropsis trypodendri L.R. Batra
Notes – Phialophoropsis was resurrected by Mayers et al. (2015) to accommodate P. trypodendri (type species) from Trypodendron scabricollis and P. ferruginea from Trypodendron lineatum. Both species are associated with ambrosia beetles of the tribe Xyloterini (Mayers et al. 2015). Other two species, P. cambrensis and P. nipponica were treated as uncertain or excluded species which would not be consistent with the current concept of Phialophoropsis (Mayers et al. 2015). The general concept of Phialophoropsis is accommodated ambrosia beetle symbionts with deep-seated phialides and the absence of aleurioconidia (Mayers et al. 2015).
