Ellis and Everhart (1892) cited Sphaeria botryosa as a synonym of Fracchiaea subcongregata (Berk. & M. A. Curtis) Ellis & Everh. Their description indicates a coronophoralean identity. Fracchiaea subcongregata was in turn synonymized with Nitschkia broomeiana (Berk.) Nannf. by Nannfeldt (1975). Fitzpatrick (1924) did not point out a place for S. botryosa but left it in the "doubtful and excluded forms" section of Fracchiaea Sacc.
