Type speciesPseudobyssosphaeria bambusae H.B. Jiang & K.D. Hyde, in Hyde et al., Mycosphere 9(2): 306 (2018).

NotesPseudobyssosphaeria was introduced based on DNA sequence analysis (Hyde et al. 2018). It is characterized by superficial, subglobose, blackened, ostiolate ascomata with outwardly brown, septate, branched hyphae, dark brown, unbranched, septate setae, septate, branched pseudoparaphyses, bitunicate, cylindrical to clavate asci and fusiform, hyaline, 1-septate ascospores. Pseudobyssosphaeria bambusae is similar to Bertiella (Hyde et al. 2018) as they are similar. Hyde et al. (2018) realized problems with DNA sequence analysis and thus introduced Pseudobyssosphaeria temporarily. This was ignored by Pem et al. (2019c) who did not include this genus in their multi-gene phylogenetic analysis.
