Type species: Antealophiotrema brunneosporum (Yin. Zhang, J. Fourn. & K.D. Hyde) A. Hashim. & Kaz. Tanaka
Notes: Antealophiotrema was introduced by Hashimota and Tanaka in Hashimoto et al. (2017) with A. brunneosporum as type species. Antealophiotrema differs from Lophiotrema s.str in having a well-developed peridium and monodictys-like asexual morph. Phylogenetically, Antealophiotrema is a lineage distinct from Lophiotrema s.str and is currently placed in Pleosporales genera incertae sedis.
