Pseudoneurospora amorphoporcata, formerly known as Gelasinospora amorphoporcata, is a soil fungus of the order Sordariales (1). Pseudoneurospora is one of the rare non-Sordaria and non-Neurospora genera in the Sordariaceae. This genus has long contained only P. amorphoporcata, but a new species (P. canariensis) was described recently (2). Strain CBS 626.80 is the type strain of P. amorphoporcata. It was isolated from a soil sample from the Philippines.
