Mycobank number: MB834934; Facesoffungi number: FoF 08097; 1 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), 1 species with molecular data.
Type species: Pseudopalawania siamensis Mapook & K.D. Hyde, Biomolecules, 10: 569 (2020).
Notes: The genus has sub-carbonaceous to superficial, flattened, carbonaceous ascomata, poorly developed basal layer and an irregular margin, with an ostioles, branching pseudoparaphyses, cylindric-clavate asci, with an ocular chamber observed clearly when immature, and broadly fusiform to inequilateral, 1-septate, hyaline ascospores, guttulate when immature, with thin gelatinous sheath (Mapook et al. 2020). Although, morphology of Pseudopalawania is typical of Palawania, molecular analyses confirmed its placement within Muyocopronaceae (Mapook et al. 2020; this study Fig. 56).
Fig. 56 Phylogram generated from maximum likelihood analysis (RAxML) of Muyocopronales based on ITS, LSU, rpb-2, SSU and tef1 sequence data. Maximum likelihood bootstrap values equal or above 70%, Bayesian posterior probabilities equal or above 0.90 (MLBS/PP) are given at the nodes. An original isolate is noted after the species name. The tree is rooted to Acrospermum com- pressum (M151) and A. gramineum (M152). The ex-type strains are indicated in bold. Hyphen (-) represents support values below 70% MLBS and 0.90 PP
