MycoBank number: MB 9965; Index Fungorum number: IF 9965; Facesoffungi number: FoF 06558; – 8 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), 2 species with molecular data.

Type species: Speiropsis pedatospora Tubaki, J. Hattori bot. Lab 20: 171 (1958).

Notes: Speiropsis is characterized by erect, simple, straight, mostly mononematous conidiophores, polyblastic conidiogenous cells and catenate conidia in branched or unbranched chains connected by narrow isthmi (Barbosa and Gusmao 2005; Pratibha et al. 2016). Based on morphology and molecular analyses, Pratibha et al. (2016) referred Spei- ropsis to Wiesneriomycetaceae. There are 28 DNA sequence data available in GenBank, comprising S. pedatospora and S. scopiformis.
