Notes – Pseudoroussoella was introduced by Mapook et al. (2020) to accommodate roussoella-like taxa having immersed to erumpent, globose to subglobose, coriaceous, uni-loculate ascomata, with protruding ostiolar neck, bitunicate, cylindrical asci, and yellowish brown to dark brown, oval to ellipsoidal, 1-septate ascospores, rough-walled with reticulate ornamentation (Phookamsak et al. 2019, Mapook et al. 2020). Pseudoroussoella has coniothyrium-like asexual morph, which is characterized by semi-immersed to superficial, globose to obpyriform, uni- loculate, papillate conidiomata, holoblastic, ampulliform to oblong, hyaline, unbranched conidiogenous cells and oblong to oval, pale brown to yellowish brown, or reddish brown, aseptate, veruculose conidia (Mapook et al. 2020).
