Baker, William A. & Gareth Morgan-Jones. Notes on Hyphomycetes. XCI. Pseudoacrodictys, a novel genus for seven taxa formerly placed in Acrodictys. Mycotaxon 85: 371 - 391. 2003.

ABSTRACT: A new generic name is established in which to classify seven species previously accommodated in the broadly conceptualized genus Acrodictys, namely A. appendiculata, A. brevicornuta, A. corniculata, A. deightonii, A. dennisii, A. eickerii, and A. viridescens. This relatively homogeneous cluster of anamorph entities is characterized by production of large, somewhat irregularly shaped, more or less evenly dark-colored, numerous-celled conidia whose septa are orientated obliquely giving a textura angularis type appearence. Six of the taxa are redescribed and illustrated from type specimens and a reformated treatment of A. corniculata, based on the original characterization, is included. Additional comments are offered on the diversity of forms found within Acrodictys sensu lato.
