Abstract: A new genus, Xanthonectria, is proposed for the enigmatic taxon Nectria pseudopeziza. Xanthonectria is characterized by nonstromatic, soft-textured, superficial, glabrous, pale yellow to bright orange nectria-like ascomata, not changing color in 3% KOH or lactic acid, long fusiform, multiseptate ascospores and an acremonium-like asexual morph. Its placement in the Bionectriaceae and its relationship to other members of this family are based on morphological, cultural and molecular data
