Notes – The monotypic genus Psychronectria was introduced to accommodate Thyronectria hyperantarctica (Pawłowska et al. 2017). Psychronectria species are associated with bryophytes (Pawłowska et al. 2017). The genus is characterised by pink, orange or pale red ascomata, arising directly from the mycelium or formed on loose stromata and, hyaline to yellow, muriform ascospores (Pawłowska et al. 2017).
