Phomatospora and Lanspora cluster together with statistical support of 86% ML and 0.97 PP, while Tenuimurus forms a clade with the other two genera with good support (100% ML, 1.00 PP). Phomatosporales contains the single family Phomatosporaceae (Senanayake et al. 2016). The divergence time for Phomatosporales is estimated as 91 MYA, which falls in the range of family status. Its status may need revision following further study. Currently there is one family and three genera in this order
