Type speciesSporoschismopsis moravica Hol.-Jech. & Hennebert

NotesSporoschismopsis was described for saprobic, wood-inhabiting dematiaceous hyphomycetes by Holubová-Jechová & Hennebert (1972). The sexual-asexual relationship between Porosphaerellopsis and Sporoschismopsis has been established by Réblová (2014), and the sexual morph Porosphaerellopsis has been treated as the synonym of Sporoschismopsis given its priority. The asexual morph of this genus is characterized by robust conidiophores with a funnel-shaped collarette, brown, septate, clavate, cuneiform, obovate or pyriform conidia, bluntly rounded at the distal end and truncate at the base, developing in a basipetal succession in fragile chains. The sexual morph is characterized by superficial to semi-immersed, subglobose, conical or ovate, dark brown ascomata and with ellipsoidal, fusiform, septate, brown to dark-brown ascospores (Réblová 2014). In addition, Réblová (2014) also provided key to the species accepted in Sporoschismopsis.
