 Year of effective publication:1821
 Name type:Basionym 
 Name status:Legitimate
 Remarks:generally considerd a synonym of Sclerotium, probably because of the description (without a pore) but actually (nearly) all species have perithecia. Sphaeria cylindrica is proposed as the type. It is also the type of the older, sanctioned Sphaeronaema, of which it thus becomes a syntypic synonym.
