Notes – Corda introduced Splanchnonema and assigned Splanchnonema pustulatum as the type species (Barr 1982). Initially twelve species were described and currently there are 37 species in this genus (Wijayawardene et al. 2017a). Splanchnonema species are saprobic, terrestrial and distributed in China, Europe, India and North America (Lumbsch & Huhndorf 2010). Zhang et al. (2012b) accepted the genus in Pleomassariaceae followed by many others (Hyde et al. 2013, Wijayawardene et al. 2017a, 2018, outline).
