Type speciesBicrouania maritima (P. Crouan & H. Crouan) Kohlm. & Volkm.-Kohlm., Mycol. Res. 94(5): 685 (1990).

Sphaeria maritima P. Crouan & H. Crouan, Florule Finistère (Paris): 27 (1867).

NotesBicrouania maritima is characterized by superficial ascomata lacking a clypeus, thick-walled asci and its association with marine algae. On account of its melanommataceous character and trabeculate pseudoparaphyses, Bicrouania remains in Melanommataceae based on distinguished morphological characters, and thus DNA sequence is essential to verify the appropriate classification (Lumbsch & Huhndorf 2010, Jones et al. 2009b, Zhang et al. 2012b, Hyde et al. 2013, Wijayawardene et al. 2014b, 2017a, Tian et al. 2015).
