Conidiophores reduced to conidiogenous cells. Conidiogenous cells ampulliform to doliiform, hyaline, smooth, covering the entire inside wall, enteroblastic, phialidic with minute collarette.

 Type species: Allantophomoides carotae S.L. Wei & T.Y. Zhang


Notes: Allantophomoides is characterised by immersed, globose to subglobose conidiomata, ampulliform to doliiform, hyaline conidiogenous cell, hyaline, guttulate, allantoid to elongate-ellipsoidal conidia. Allantophomoides resembles septoria-like species in having allantoid to elongate-ellipsoidal conidia. The placement of Allantophomoides in Mycosphaerellaceae is doubtful and needs to be recollected.
