Recent phylogenetic studies on the members of the Diaporthales have shown that the order includes a number of distinct phylogenetic groups. These groups represent the Gnomoniaceae, Melanconidaceae, Valsaceae, Diaporthaceae and Togniniaceae. New groups representing undescribed families have also emerged and they have been referred to as the Schizoparme, Cryphonectria-Endothia and Harknessia complexes. In this study, we define the new family Cryphonectriaceae (Diaporthales) to accommodate genera in the Cryphonectria-Endothia complex. These genera can be distinguished from those in other families or undescribed groups of the Diaporthales, by the formation of orange stromatic tissue at some stage of their life cycle, and a purple color reaction in KOH and a yellow reaction in lactic acid associated with pigments in the stromatic tissue or in culture.
