Type speciesBhatiellae rosae Wanas., Camporesi, E.B.G. Jones & K.D. Hyde, in Wanasinghe et al., Fungal Diversity 89: 107 (2018).

NotesBhatiellae was introduced to accommodate hyphomycetous asexual morph and is characterized by forming sporodochia with tightly aggregated, cylindrical, macronematous, mononematous, unbranched, aseptate, brown to dark brown conidiophores and having polyblastic, sympodial, integrated, terminal, cylindrical, undulate conidiogenous cells with large, cicatrized scars. The conidia of Bhatiellae are brown to olivaceous brown, ellipsoidal to fusiform, 5–8- distoseptate. The genus is accomodated in Phaeosphaeriaceae based on molecular phylogeny (Wanasinghe et al. 2018c). More taxon sampling of this genus is needed to confirm its phylogenetic placement in this family.
