Type species: Lembosiopeltis nectandrae Bat. & J.L. Bezerra


Notes: Pseudorobillarda was introduced by Morelet (1968) to accommodate P. phragmitis as type species. Pseudorobillarda accommodate species characterized by conidia with basal appendages. Species of Pseudorobillarda are mostly differentiated by presence or absence of paraphyses and conidial structures such as position, shape, length/size and septation (Nag Raj 1993). Li et al. (2020) recently provided an account of the genus.
