Pseudoepicoccum M.B. Ellis, Dematiaceous Hyphomycetes (Kew): 270 (1971)

Index Fungorum number: IF 9574; Facesoffungi number: FoF 11084

Note – Ellis (1971) established the genus Pseudoepicoccum to accommodate Epicoccum cocos Stevens (1932: 81), isolated from coconut leaves in the Philippines, with P. cocos as the type species. Sharma et al. (1985) added P. tectonae Sharma & Mohanan isolated from leaves of Tectona grandis from Kerala, India, as a second species in the genus. We observed the type specimen of Epicoccum cocos, which proved to be identical to our specimen
