[C] Ascosphaera L. S. Olive et Spiltoir, Mycologia 47: 242. 29 Apr 1955.
T.: Pericystis apis Maasen et Claussen (non vidi)
Although Ascosphaera was intended as a substitute name for Pericystis Betts 1912 (non J. G. Agardh 1847), the authors based it on a different species. The combination in Ascosphaera was not validly published by Olive et Spiltoir (ICBN Art. 33).
