Index Fungorum Number: IF 7262; Facesoffungi Number: FoF 11106

Conidiomata stromatic. Conidiogenous cells enterothallic. Conidia hyaline, aseptate, cylindrical.

Typification Details – Saprobes, Switzerland.

Notes – Hess and Müller (1951) introduced a monotypic genus Asteromellopsis and described Asteromellopsis insculpta H.E. Hess & E. Müll. as the asexual state found in young ascomata of Dothidea insculpta found in nature. Sutton (1980) mentioned that this genus is spermatial stage of Dothidea insculpta Wallr. Hence, it is doubtful whether it is a distinct genus.
