Type species: Pararamichloridium livistonae Crous, in Crous et al., Persoonia 39: 357 (2017)
Notes: Currently, three species, Pararamichloridium caricicola, P. livistonae and P. verrucosum are accepted in this genus. The genus is characterised by branched or unbranched, medium brown, septate conidiophores, medium brown, denticulate conidiogenous cells and solitary, hyaline, smooth, granular, aseptate, and clavate conidia (Crous et al. 2017). Pararamichloridium livistonae was collected from the leaves of Livistona australis in Australia and it causes leaf spots of the host plant (Crous et al. 2017).
