Phaeosphaeria nodulispora sp. nov. is proposed here as a new species of coelomycetes based on material isolated as endophytic in leaves of Cocos nucifera. Phaeosphaeria nodulispora is distinct from other congeneric species mainly by differences in DNA sequences, conidial shape and size. The phylogenetic relationship between Ph. nodulispora and other species is discussed.
