Type speciesXenomassariosphaeria rosae Jayasiri, Camporesi & K.D. Hyde, in Wanasinghe et al., Fungal Divers. 89: 103 (2018).

NotesXenomassariosphaeria was introduced with the type species, X. rosae as the first record of its sexual morph in Paradictyoarthriniaceae by Wanasinghe et al. (2018c). The holotype specimen (MFLU 15-1073) was isolated from dead aerial spines of Rosa canina in Italy. Morphologically, X. rosae is similar to Massariosphaeria spp. in having transversely septate ascospores, thick-walled, and surrounded by a prominent gelatinous sheath (Tanaka & Harada 2004).
