Neotyphodium is a genus of endophytic fungi symbiotic with grasses. It used to contain a number of asexually reproducing species colonising the leaves of cool-season grasses, but most of them, including the type species N. coenophialum, have been merged into the genus Epichloë in 2014. Only two species of unclear position are retained in Neotyphodium:[1]
