Type speciesPrathoda saparva Subram., J. Indian bot. Soc. 35: 73 (1956).

Notes – The genus Prathoda was introduced by Subramaniam (1956) with Prathoda saparva as type species and was resurrected by Simmons (2007). Prathoda is mentioned as a synonym of Alternaria in Index Fungorum and Mycobank (2020), but its molecular phylogeny and relationship with Alternaria is still not resolved. Therefore, we leave Prathoda as a separate genus in Pleosporaceae.
