Notes: Asterotexis is a plant-pathogen found on leaves, and was identified as a member of Asterinaceae (Inácio and Cannon 2008; Guerrero et al. 2011; Hongsanan et al. 2014b). Morphologically and phylogenetically, the genus could not be placed in any family of Asterinales (this study). Thus, Asterotexis is placed in its own family, Asterotexaceae.
