Type speciesWongia garrettii (P. Wong & M.L. Dickinson) Khemmuk, Geering & R.G. Shivas

Notes – This genus was introduced to accommodate two root infecting fungi from Australia Magnaporthe garrettii and M. griffinii, which formed a well-supported separate clade in Papulosaceae and clustered outside Magnaporthales (Khemmuket al. 2016). Wongia species have J- , apical rings in the asci and 3-septate ascospores that have dark brown middle cells and pale brown to subhyaline shorter distal cells (Khemmuket al. 2016).
