Pseudocamarosporium Wijayaw. & K.D. Hyde, in Wijayawardene et al., Cryptog. Mycol. 35(2): 185 (2014), Index Fungorum number: IF 550556

Pseudocamarosporium was established by Wijayawardene et al. (2014b) for some camarosporium-like species grouping in Didymosphaeriaceae (= Montagnulaceae) and typified by Pseudocamarosporium propinquum. Later, Camarosporium brabeji Marincowitz, M.J. Wingf. & Crous, Paraconiothyrium africanum Damm, Verkley & Crous and Pseudocamarosporium pini (Westend.) Phukhamsakda, Camporesi & K.D. Hyde were included in the genus as new combinations based on their phylogenetic affinities (Crous et al. 2015; Li et al. 2016). We collected P. propinquum associated with dead branches of Tamarix gallica in Italy and it perfectly matches with the epitype description (Wijayawardene et al. 2014b) and clustered together with the ex-type strain (Fig. 19). This is the first record of P. propinquum on Tamarix species.

Type species: Pseudocamarosporium propinquum (Sacc.) Wijayaw., Camporesi & K.D. Hyde, in Wijayawardene, et al. Cryptog. Mycol. 35(2): 191 (2014).
