Type speciesPhragmotrichum chailletii Kunze, in Kunze & Schmidt, Mykologische Hefte (Leipzig) 2: 84 (1823).

NotesPhragmotrichum is characterized by stromatic to cupulate conidiomata, cylindrical, hyaline conidiophores, thallic, integrated, cylindrical conidiogenous cells, producing unbranched basipetal chains of muriform, fusoid to ellipsoid, brown conidia. The holotype of P. chailletii was destroyed during World War II, and Crous et al. (2019c) designated a neotype which was also collected from Switzerland. Sequence data in Phragmotrichum indicated that the type species P. chailletii clustered within Melanommataceae (Crous et al. 2019c).
