Parapallidocercospora (genus) Videira, Crous, U. Braun, C. Nakash. 2017

This genus contains several plant pathogenic fungi that cause leaf spot diseases on trees in tropical regions. For example, Parapallidocercospora colombiensis infects Eucalyptus trees in Colombia. The conidia are formed singly and are light brown, septate and tapering towards the base.
