Type species – Sphaerellopsis filum (Biv.) B. Sutton, Mycol. Pap. 141: 196 (1977).
≡ Sphaeria filum Biv., Stirp. Rar. Sic. 3: 12 (1815).
Notes – Species of Sphaerellopsis are reported as saprobic, pathogenic or mycoparasitic on stems and leaves of herbaceous or woody plants in terrestrial habitats (Trakunyingcharoen et al. 2014, Crous et al. 2016b). Trakunyingcharoen et al. (2014) considered Eudarluca as the sexual morph of Sphaerellopsis and proposed Sphaerellopsis over Eudarluca based on the priority of the oldest name. Phookamsak et al. (2014c) demonstrated that the morphological characters of Eudarluca were more compatible with Phaeosphaeriaceae. Phookamsak et al. (2019) confirmed the phylogenetic placement of Sphaerellopsis in Leptosphaeriaceae. However, sequence data for the type specimens of Eudarluca is required for clarification.
