Aplosporella macropycnidia, sp. nov., is described and illustrated from a dead branch of Cerasus yedoensis in China. Aplosporella macropycnidia is morphologically characterized by having large, multilocular pycnidia with a central ostiole, verrucose, brown conidia, and the presence of prominent paraphyses. Its relationships with other species of Aplosporella are discussed based on morphology and ITS nrDNA, EF1-a dataset sequence comparisons. Aplosporella prunicola is reported as a new record on Cercis chinensis from China, and A. javeedii is collected from four different hosts in Beijing and Henan province in this study.
