Ascagilis K.D. Hyde, Aust. Syst. Bot. 5(1): 109 (1992).

MycoBank number: MB 21262; Index Fungorum number: IF 21262; Facesoffungi number: FoF 09187; 7 morphological species (Dong et al. 2020), 7 species with molecular data.

Type species: Ascagilis bipolaris K.D. Hyde, Aust. Syst. Bot. 5(1): 111 (1992).

Notes: The type species Ascagilis bipolaris was transferred to Jahnula by Hyde and Wong (1999). Dong et al. (2020) resurrected Ascagilis to accommodate 7 species based on its mucilaginous pad of ascospores which is considered as noticeable characteristic of Ascagilis. Phylogenetic analyses supported the placement of Ascagilis in Aliquandostipitaceae (Dong et al. 2020; this study).
