Type species – Sigarispora ravennica (Tibpromma, Camporesi & K.D. Hyde) Thambug. & K.D. Hyde, Fungal Divers. 74: 238 (2015).
≡ Lophiostoma ravennicum Tibpromma, Camporesi & K.D. Hyde, in Liu et al., Fungal Divers: 72:117 (2015).
Notes – The type species of this genus, Sigarispora ravennica was originally described as Lophiostoma ravennicum by Liu et al. (2015) based on their phylogenetic results, coupled with morphological characteritics. Thambugala et al. (2015b) showed that Lophiostoma ravennicum forms a separate clade in Lophiostomataceae and grouped with new strain. Therefore, Thambugala et al. (2015b) introduce Sigarispora to accommodate Sigarispora ravennica in Lophiostomataceae based on distinct characters of immersed to semi-immersed ascomata, crest-like ostiole and brown, multi-septate ascospores.
