The type species, Bertia moriformis, is characterized by tuberculate ascomata and
clavate asci and brown ascospores (Mugambi & Huhndorf 2010, Maharachchikumbura et al. 2016b). We
provide a multi-gene phylogenetic tree (Fig. 11), which reveals that Bertia is closely related to
members of Nitschkiaceae (Nitschkia, Acanthonitschkea and Fracchiaea) with good
support (Fig. 11).
