Type species – Barria piceae Z.Q. Yuan, Mycotaxon 51: 314 (1994).
Notes – Barria was introduced by Yuan (1994) as a monotypic genus and typified by Barria piceae, according to its “two-celled, pigmented ascospores, pseudoparenchymatous peridium and narrowly cellular pseudoparaphyses. Zhang et al. (2012b) tentatively referred Barria in Phaeosphaeriaceae based on the ascomata, colour and shape of ascospores. Ariyawansa et al. (2014d) broadly discussed the morphology differences between Barria and Phaeosphaeria species and transferred Barria from Phaeosphaeriaceae to Didymosphaeriaceae. Phookamsak et al. (2014c) also accepted that Barria is more similar to genera in Didymosphaeriaceae rather than Phaeosphaeriaceae. Only one species has been recorded in this genus (Species Fungorum 2020).
