Type species: Pileospora piceae J.B. Tanney & K.A. Seifert, Mycol. Prog. 18: 169 (2019).

Notes: Pileospora is distinct from Septorioides by its aseptate, ellipsoidal-fusiform conidia with apical appendages versus subcylindrical to fusiform-ellipsoidal, 1–10-septate conidia lacking appendages. Pileospora is similar to Neofusicoccum, Saccharata, and other genera of Botryosphaeriales having fusicoccum-like asexual states with cooccurring irregularly-shaped conidia. An irregular, mucoid, apical appendage distinguishes conidia of Pileospora from above mentioned similar genera.
