NotesVacuiphoma was introduced by Valenzuela-Lopez et al. (2018) to accommodate taxa which are characterised by pycnidial conidiomata that are brown to dark brown, solitary, glabrous, subglobose or obpyriform with textura angularis pycnidial wall and apapillate. The occurrence of empty pycnidial structures gave its name Vacuiphoma.
