Notes – Versicolorisporium, a coelomycetous genus, was placed in Pleosporales based on morphology and LSU sequence data. It is characterized by the production of holoblastic, 3-septate, obovoid, versicolored conidia, and differs from similar genera Neohendersonia, Toxosporiella and Toxosporiopsis by the uniloculate pycnidial conidiomata with a periphysate ostiole, lacking paraphyses, and the conidia without black-banded septa. Dai et al. (2017) introduced Occultibambusaceae and included this genus based on multi-gene phylogenetic analyses. (see morphology in Hatakeyama et al. 2008).
