Type speciesPseudomelanconis caryae C.M. Tian & X.L. Fan

Notes – The monospecific genus Pseudomelanconis has acervular conidiomata covered by pustulate conidial masses on the bark surface. This genus is significantly different from other taxa due to its distinct conidiogenous cells with apical collarettes showing discrete annellations. The conidial sheath becomes inconspicuous when mature (Fan et al. 2018).
