Members of the genus Eucalyptus represent a substrate richly colonized by numerous undescribed fungal species. Several species and genera of ascomycetes were collected from leaves or from leaf litter of this host genus in Australia and South Africa in the present study. New genera include Eucasphaeria capensis and Sympoventuria capensis (ascomycetes), genera et spp. nov. New species include Furcaspora eucalypti, Harknessia ipereniae, H. gibbosa, Heteroconium kleinziensis and Phacidiella eucalypti.
