Pseudoproboscispora Punith., Kew Bull. 54(1): 234 (1999)

Index Fungorum number: IF28391; 3 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), 2 species with sequence data.

Type species – Pseudoproboscispora aquatica (S.W. Wong & K.D. Hyde) Punith.

Notes – Proboscispora was introduced by Wong & Hyde (1999) to accommodate P. aquatica which was collected on submerged wood in freshwater. It was renamed Pseudoproboscispora by Punithalingam (1999). Pseudoproboscispora was placed in Annulatascaceae by Maharachchikumbura et al. (2016b) and later transferred to a new family Pseudoproboscisporaceae based on phylogenetic analysis (Zhang et al. 2017a). However, Pseudoproboscispora caudae-suis clustered in Annulatascaceae which is distant from Pseudoproboscisporaceae (Zhang et al. 2017a).
