Type speciesXenopenidiella rigidophora (Crous, R.F. Castañeda & U. Braun) Quaedvl. & Crous, Persoonia 33: 33 (2014).

Penidiella rigidophora Crous, R.F. Castañeda & U. Braun, in Crous, Braun & Groenewald, Stud. Mycol. 58: 21 (2007)

NotesXenopenidiella is similar with Penidiella but ‘distinct in that conidiophores are dimorphic, not truly penicillate (rather loosely branched at the apex), and conidiogenous cells often appear subdenticulate’ (Quaedvlieg et al. 2014). See description and illustration in Crous et al. (2007a) and Quaedvlieg et al. (2014).
