Type species – Pseudolophiotrema elymicola A. Hashim. & Kaz. Tanaka
Notes – Morphologically, Pseudolophiotrema is similar to Lophiotrema but can be distinguished in having thinner ascomatal walls, composed of compressed cells, while the ascomatal wall of Lophiotrema comprises rectangular cells (Holm & Holm 1988, Hashimoto et al. 2017b). Pseudolophiotrema is also similar to Atrocalyx, but dffers in having well-developed peridium around the ostiolar neck and base (Hashimoto et al. 2017b). Hashimoto et al. (2017b) treated Pseudolophiotrema as Pleosporales genus incertae sedis. Hongsanan et al. (2018) established Pseudolophiotremataceae to accommodate this genus based on phylogeny and divergence time estimation.
