Notes – Li et al. (2016a) described the second species P. thailandica saprobic on decaying bamboo. Tibpromma et al. (2018) introduced three Polyplosphaeria species from Pandanaceae and provide an updated synopsis of its asexual morph. Sexual morph is characterized by globose ascomata with central beak, fissitunicate, clavate, short-stalked, 8-spored asci, and 2-seriate, fusiform, 1(–3)-septate hyaline to pale olive-brown ascospores with an entire sheath (Tanaka et al. 2009). Its asexual morph has micronematous conidiophores, monoblastic conidiogenous cells and brown, muriform, globose, obovoid, pyriform, ellipsoidal conidia with one or two forms of appendages (Tanaka et al. 2009, Li et al. 2016a, Tibpromma et al. 2018).
