Zeloasperisporium R.F. Castañeda,  Mycotaxon 60:  284(1996).

MycoBank number: MB 27808; Index Fungorum number: IF 27808; Facesoffungi number: FoF 08835; 8 mophological species (Species Fungorum 2020), 8 species with molecular data

Type species: Zeloasperisporium hyphopodioides R.F. Castañeda.

Notes: Zeloasperisporium was introduced as genus incertae sedis by Castañeda-Ruíz et al. (1996), with the type species Z. hyphopodioides isolated from air in Cuba. Crous et al. (2007b) placed this genus in Venturiaceae based on phylogenetic placement basal to Venturiaceae. Two species from leaves of Eucalyptus and Clivia were introduced based on asexual characters and molecular data (Cheewangkoon et al. 2009; Crous et al. 2015b). Hongsanan et al. (2015b) linked the sexual morph genus (Neomicrothyrium) with Zeloasperisporium and added two new species to this genus. Phylogenetic analyses strongly support species of Zeloasperisporium as a distinct family and order (Hongsanan et al. 2015b).
