NotesCarinispora was introduced to accommodate a marine Dothideomycetes by Hyde (1992a). Later another species, C. velatispora (Hyde 1994) was placed in the genus. The genus is characterized by immersed to erumpent, ostiolate, coriaceous ascomata with minute papilla, 8- spored, bitunicate, fissitunicate, cylindric-clavate to clavate, shortly pedicellate asci, and hyaline, fusiform, multi-septate ascospores surrounded by sheath. The genus was positioned in Pseudoastrosphaeriellaceae based on morphology and phylogeny (Hyde et al. 2017).
