Cophinforma Doilom, Jian K. Liu & K.D. Hyde, in Liu et al., Fungal Diversity 57(1): 174 (2012)
Index Fungorum number: IF 801315; Facesoffungi number: FoF 07624; – 2 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), 2 species with molecular data.
Type species: Cophinforma eucalypti Doilom, Jian K. Liu & K.D. Hyde, in Liu et al., Fungal Diversity 57(1): 174 (2012).
Notes: Cophinforma was introduced by Liu et al. (2012) as a monotypic genus for C. eucalypti. Phillips et al. (2013), based on a multi-gene analysis, introduced two species to this genus that were previously included in Botryosphaeria. Cophinforma is phylogenetically distinguished from Botryosphaeria despite being similar, except for conidia that are longer than any known species in Botryosphaeria. There are three species in this genus (Dissanayake et al. 2017).
