Dothideomycetes, Pleosporomycetidae, Pleosporales, Didymellaceae

Index Fungorum number: IF 814061; Facesoffungi number: FoF 08228; 9 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), 9 species with molecular data.

Type species – Paraboeremia selaginellae (Sacc.) Qian Chen & L. Cai, Stud. Mycol. 82: 184 (2015).

Phyllosticta selaginellae Sacc., Malpighia 11(6-8): 304 (1897).

Notes: Paraboeremia resembles Boeremia, but it is phylogenetically distinct. Species belonging to this genus are characterised by phialidic, globose to flask-shaped conidiogenous cells, and aseptate, guttulate, ellipsoidal, sometimes curved, hyaline to greenish conidia (Chen et al. 2015). (Adopted from Hongsanan et al. 2020). Paraboeremia taiwanensis was isolated from the fruiting body of Cordyceps ninchukispora in Taiwan (Yang et al. 2020). This species show ability of parasitizing the eggs of nematode (Meloidogyne graminicola) in vitro condition (Liang et al. 2020).
