During surveys of anamorphic fungi, two undescribed taxa of Zasmidium were discovered, Z. dioscorinum sp. nov. on Dioscorea oppositifolia (Dioscoreaceae) and Z. robustum sp. nov. on living leaves of Prunus sp. (Rosaceae), in subtropical forests of northeastern Uttar Pradesh, India. These two species differ from similar species morphologically. These species are described, illustrated and compared with closely related taxa.
