Notes – Kohlmeyer & Volkmann-Kohlmeyer (1987) introduced the monotypic genus Belizeana as a member of Pleosporaceae and reported the asexual morph of Belizeana as phoma- like. Lumbsch & Huhndorf (2007) placed Belizeana in Dothideomycetes, genera incertae sedis. However, this genus was later transferred to Elsinoaceae by Lumbsch & Huhndorf (2010). Zhang et al. (2012b) accepted Belizeana as Pleosporales, genera incertae sedis. Later, the genus was accepted as a genus in Dothideales incertae sedis (Jones et al. 2015). Based on subglobose, dark brown to black ascomata, clavate to cylindrical asci and 1-septate, ellipsoidal, pale brown ascospores, Pem et al. (2019c) transferred Belizeana to Dothidotthiaceae. Sequence data is requested to confirm its placement in Dothidotthiaceae.
