The generic name Quasiploeospora, type species Q. saximontanensis comb. nov., is introduced for a species associated with foliar lesions on the forest weed Ribes viscosissimum and other species of Ribes. It is compared with similar genera and species of hyphomycetes and coelomycetes, especially Phloeosporella ribis comb. nov. with which it has been confused.
