Type speciesAscocratera manglicola Kohlm., Can. J. Bot. 64(12): 3036 (1986).

Notes – Kohlmeyer (1986) introduced Ascocratera with A. manglicola as the type species, and tentatively placed it in Massariaceae, order Melanommatales. This species was described from dead wood of mangrove trees such as Avicennia germinans, Laguncularia racemosa and Rhizophora mangle in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans (Kohlmeyer 1986). Suetrong et al. (2009) provided sequence data for this species and placed it in Aigialaceae, Pleosporales.
