Index Fungorum number: IF 804464; Facesoffungi number: FoF 06278; – 2 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), 2 species with molecular data.
Type species: Septorioides pini-thunbergii (S. Kaneko) Quaedvlieg et al. Stud. Mycol. 75: 383 (2013).
≡ Septoria pini-thunbergii S. Kaneko, in Kaneko et al., Trans. Mycol. Soc. Japan 30(4): 463 (1989)
Notes: This genus is characterized by acervular conidiomata that open by means of an irregular rupture and paraphyses that are intermingled among conidiogenous cells (Quaedvlieg et al. 2013). Septorioides pini-thunbergii was associated with needle blight and the cause of sooty mould of Pinus thunbergii in Japan (Suto 2000). Later, this species was isolated as an endophyte from P. densiflora in South Korea (Yoo and Eom 2012). The trend of raising established genera to familial status continued when Wyka and Broders (2016) introduced Septorioideaceae within the Botryosphaeriales to accommodate Septorioides species. They introduced a novel species Septorioides strobi as the second species of this family. However, Phillips et al. (2019) placed Septorioides as a genus in Saccharataceae taking into consideration the results of phylogenetic analyses, evolutionary divergence and morphological data.
