Type species: Pleurohelicosporium parvisporum Y.Z. Lu, J.C. Kang & K.D. Hyde, Fungal Diversity 92: 248 (2018).
Notes: Pleurohelicosporium was introduced based on phylogenetic and morphological evidence. Pleurohelicosporium shares similar asexual morphs with Neohelicosporium but can be distinguished by its pleurogenous conidia, while the conidia of Neohelicosporium are acrogenous or acropleurogenous (Lu et al. 2018b). The type species P. parvisporum is the only accepted species in this genus.
