Type speciesPleoseptum yuccaesedum A.W. Ramaley & M.E. Barr, Mycotaxon 54: 76 (1995).

NotesPleoseptum is a monotypic genus. Pleoseptum forms a camarosporium-like asexual morph. The genus was previously accepted in Phaeosphaeriaceae (Hyde et al. (2013), however Phookamsak et al. (2014c) placed it in Pleosporaceae based on the peridium structure which is very thick, composed of heavily pigmented, thick-walled cells with ostiole and typical of Pleosporaceae. Molecular data is unavailable and fresh collections are needed (morphology see Phookamsak et al. 2014c, Wijayawardene et al. 2018, outline).
