Notes – Crous & Groenewald (2017) introduced Querciphoma for phoma-like strains distinguishable in the uni- to multi-locular conidiomata, with eustromatic structure and brown verruculose conidia. The fungus was isolated from leaves and twigs of Quercus robur and is phylogenetically related to Leptosphaeriaceae taxa. No sexual morph characters are recorded for this genus (Wijayawardene et al. 2017a).
