Type species – Xenopyricularia zizaniicola (Hashioka) Klaubauf, Lebrun & Crous
Notes – Xenopyricularia is a monotypic genus, introduced to accommodate X. zizaniicola which is pathogenic on Zizania latifolia in Japan. Xenopyricularia is similar to Pyricularia, except the conidia are very wide and more obovoid than in Pyricularia, and some conidia appear to be irregularly pigmented (Klaubauf et al. 2014).
