Type species – Pseudophialophora eragrostis J. Luo & N. Zhang

Notes – Luo et al. (2014) confirmed the placement of Pseudophialophora in Magnaporthaceae by phylogenetic analysis. The type species was isolated from roots of Eragrostis in New Jersey. The genus is phialophora-like, producing dark septate hyphae, simple and short conidiophores, typical phialides and unicellular conidia (Luo et al. 2014). Crous et al. (2017) provided a phylogenetic update to nine species.
