Type species: Pseudolembosia geographica (Massee) Theiss., Annls mycol. 11(5): 432 (1913).

Lembosia geographica Massee, Bull. Misc. Inf., Kew: 181 (1899).

Notes: Pseudolembosia was introduced by Theissen (1913) with P. geographica as the type species. Index Fungorum (2020) listed five epithets, but only four taxa are accepted by Inácio and Cannon (2008). This genus was reported as pathogens on living leaves (morphology see Inácio and Cannon 2008; Wijayawardene et al. 2018, 2020). Pseudolembosia is characterized by superficial, circular to elliptical, disc-like, black, rather flat ascostromata raised up to Y-shaped to irregular near the center (Inácio and Cannon 2008).
