Type species – Xenodactylaria thailandica Crous
Notes – Dactylaria (de Hoog 1985) is heterogeneous genera (Crous et al. 2016a, 2017a) with
the type species, D. purpurella, clustering in Magnaporthales (Klaubauf et al. 2014) and has
similarities with Dactylaria and Cylindrosympodium. Xenodactylaria is distinct from Dactylaria
and Cylindrosympodium in having hyaline hyphae, conidiophores, conidiogenous cells and hyaline
conidia with occur in short chains. Xenodactylaria phylogenetically clusters on its own. In this
study, X. thailandica is illustrated.
