Notes – A monotypic genus Pseudoneoconiothyrium was introduced by Wanasinghe et al. (2018c) [as Neoconiothyrium Wanas. et al.] to accommodate coniothyrium-like taxon. The genus was found as a saprobe occurring on dead spines of Rosa canina (Rosaceae) in Italy and is characterized by stromatic, pycidial, immersed to semi-immersed, globose to subglobose conidiomata, broadly ampulliform, holoblastic, annellidic conidiogenous cells, with several distinct percurrent proliferations and subglobose to ellipsoidal, golden-brown to orange-brown, aseptate, rough-walled conidia (Wanasinghe et al. 2018c). The sexual morph is unknown for this genus. Phookamsak et al. (2019) transferred this genus to Roussoellaceae based on multi-gene phylogeny and this is in agreement with Jiang et al. (2019) and Karunarathna et al. (2019).
