Type speciesAquasubmersa mircensis Huang Zhang & K.D. Hyde.

NotesAquasubmersa was established by Zhang et al. (2012a), with the asexual type species A. mircensis. Ariyawansa et al. (2015a) introduced the second species, A. japonica, with sexual and asexual morphs. This genus was placed in Lophiotremataceae by Doilom et al. (2016). Phylogenetic analyses using ITS, LSU, rpb-2, SSU, and tef1 sequence data support this genus as a sister clade of Lophiotremataceae and Cryptocoryneaceae (Hashimoto et al. 2017b).
