This special issue was inspired by two workshops, (i) a workshop on the identification and classification of Botryosphaeriales at the University of Southern Queensland, 26–30 June 2017 that was organised by the Subcommittee on Plant Health Diagnostics in collaboration with Plant Health Australia and funded by the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources through a grant from the Modern Diagnostics initiative as part of a professional development program for plant health diagnosticians; and (ii) a one-day symposium ‘Botryosphaeriaceae menace: Taxonomy, disease impact, ecology and management’ at the Science Protecting Plant Health 2017 conference held in conjunction with the Australasian Plant Pathology Society biennial conference, Brisbane, 25 September 2017. This issue contains reviews and original research articles on Botryosphaeriales in Australia and New Zealand.
