Dinemasporium japonicum was found growing on the decaying stems of Polytrichum commune (Bryophyta). The identification of D. japonicum was based on its morphological characteristics and the sequence analysis of the internal transcribed spacer of ribosomal DNA. This represents the first record of D. japonicum on a non-tracheophyte substrate, and the first record of its occurrence in Korea.
