Type species – Ciferriascosea rectamurum Senan., Bhat, Camporesi & K.D. Hyde
Notes – Ciferriascosea was introduced to accommodate two sexual morph species Ciferriascosea fluctamurum and C. rectamurum occurring on Sparticum junceum collected, from Italy (Senanayake et al. 2015). They are characterized by having immersed, black pseudostromata, ostiolate and papillate ascomata that produce asci with an indistinct J+, apical ring, and hyaline, 1- septate, fusiform ascospores with narrowly rounded ends (Senanayake et al. 2015). Both species of Ciferriascosea were introduced based on LSU and ITS sequence data.
