Type species – Pseudolophiostoma vitigenum (Kaz. Tanaka & Y. Harada) Thambug., Kaz. Tanaka & K.D. Hyde, Fungal Divers. 74: 235 (2015).
≡ Lophiotrema vitigenum Kaz. Tanaka & Y. Harada, Mycoscience 44(2): 119 (2003).
Notes – The type species of this genus, Pseudolophiostoma vitigenum was originally described as Lophiostoma vitigenum by Tanaka & Harada (2003b) based on its rather small ascomata and peridia of equal thickness. According to Thambugala et al. (2015b), the ex-type strain of Lophiostoma vitigenum (MAFF 239459) is well-separated from other genera in Lophiostomataceae. Therefore, Thambugala et al. (2015b) introduced the new genus Pseudolophiostoma to accommodate Lophiostoma vitigenum in Lophiostomataceae.
