In the published version of the article “New studies on Apiospora (Amphisphaeriales, Apiosporaceae): epitypification of Sphaeria apiospora, proposal of Ap. marianiae sp. nov. and description of the asexual morph of Ap. sichuanensis” by Pintos & Alvarado, MycoKeys 92: 63–78 (2022) the culture designated as holotype of Apiospora marianiae was not indicated as being preserved in a metabolically inactive state. As a consequence, the proposed new species name is invalid due to Art. 40.8 of the Shenzhen Code (Turland et al. 2018).

The species is validated herein:

Apiospora marianiae Pintos & P. Alvarado, sp. nov. MB 845455 For a detailed description see: Pintos & Alvarado, MycoKeys 92: 70 (2022). Holotype: CBS 148710 (preserved in a metabolically inactive state).

In addition, the epitypification of Sphaeria apiospora was published without an identifier and is therefore not Code compliant (Art. F.5.4, Shenzhen Code).

Here, we designate the epitype again:

Apiospora montagnei Sacc., Nuovo Giorn. Bot. Ital. 7: 306 (1875). Replaced synonym: Sphaeria apiospora Durieu & Mont., Exploration scientifique de l’Algérie 1(13): 482, tab. 25, fig. 1 (1849)

Supported lectotype: PC 0125160.

Epitype (designated here, MBT 10008889): Spain, Catalonia, Girona, L’Escala, 42°07’06.5”N 3°09’01.0”E, on dead culms of Arundo micrantha, 30 Nov. 2020, Marc Grañem, PC 0125164; exepitype CBS 148707.
