Index Fungorum number: IF 801313; Facesoffungi number: FoF 02408; – 2 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), 2 species with molecular data.
Type species: Botryobambusa fusicoccum Phook., Jian K. Liu & K.D. Hyde, in Liu et al., Fungal Diversity 57(1): 166 (2012).
Notes: Botryobambusa was introduced by Liu et al. (2012) with a single species with both sexual and asexual morphs. Phylogenetically this genus is clearly distinguished from Botryosphaeria. However, it is similar to Botryosphaeria except for smaller asci and ascospores that are surrounded by a mucilagenous sheath. Two species are accommodated in this genus (Dissanayake et al. 2017).
