Type speciesPodosordaria mexicana Ellis & Holw.

Notes Podosordaria was described by Holway (1897) and has erumpent, obconical stromata with glomerate head and stipe, clavate-slightly pyriform, short-pedicellate asci with a J+, apical ring and equilateral ellipsoidal, dark brown ascospores with a gelatinous sheath and a geniculosporium-like asexual morph. Multigene phylogenetic studies revealed that the genus has a close affinity to Poronia in Xylariaceae (Daranagama et al. 2018, Wendt et al. 2018).
