Notes Bimuria was introduced by Hawksworth et al. (1979) as a monotypic genus and characterized by a very thin peridium, mostly 2-spored, fissitunicate asci and muriform, dark brown, verrucose ascospores. Due to the unique morphological characters, Hawksworth et al. (1979) placed the genus in Pleosporaceae and later accommodated it in Phaeosphaeriaceae.
