Lasiodiplodia Ellis & Everh. 1896

This genus of ascomycetes contains several important plant pathogen like the type species, Lasiodiplodia theobromae. In general the genus is similar to Diplodia but can be separated by differences in the morphology and the DNA structure.

The conidia are hyaline when young, later become dark brown, thick-walled, with longitudinal striations and an euseptum. The shape is oblong to ellipsoid, straight, broadly rounded at the apex and truncated at the base.
