Neodeightonia C. Booth, in Punithalingam, Mycol. Pap. 119: 17 (1970) [1969]

Index Fungorum number: IF 3450; Facesoffungi number: FoF 07627; – 8 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), 8 species with with molecular data.

Type species: Neodeightonia subglobosa C. Booth, Mycol. Pap. (1970)

Notes: Neodeightonia was introduced by Booth (Punithalingam 1969), but later it was regarded as a synonym of Botryosphaeria (von Arx and Müller 1975). However, it was reinstated by Phillips et al. (2008) based on morphological characters including the dark, 1-septate ascospores, and its phylogenetic placement. Longitudinal striations on the conidial wall are an additional characteristic feature of this genus (Crous et al.2006a; Phillips et al. 2008). Neodeightonia can be differentiated from Lasiodiplodia by the absence of conidiomatal paraphyses, and conidial striations distinguish it from Diplodia. Eight species are recognized (Konta et al. 2016).
