Type speciesPseudoscypha abietis J. Reid & Piroz., Can. J. Bot. 44: 351 (1966).

Notes – Eriksson (2006) placed Pseudoscypha in Hysteriaceae based only on morphological data. In the original illustrations, no sterile tissue or excipulum was present, and the bitunicate asci and pseudoparaphyses arise directly from an erumpent orange basal stromatic cushion (Reid & Pirozynski 1966). Fresh material and sequence data are required to confirm the placement of this genus.
