Type speciesPringsheimia rosarum Schulzer, Verh. zool.-bot. Ges. Wien 16: 57 (1866)

NotesPringsheimia was introduced by Schulzer (in Schulzer et al. 1866) to accommodate P. rosarum and currently comprises 17 epithets (Index Fungorum 2014). We could not locate the type of this genus. A sequence from a putative strain of Pringsheimia smilacis is available in GenBank and clustered in the Dothideaceae as a separate clade in our phylogenetic tree. The sequences of the type and other species are not available, and they need recollecting, molecular analysis, and epitypifying in order to resolve the family placement of this genus.
