Saprobes or pathogens on leaf surface. Sexual morph: Undetermined. Asexual morph: Hyphae coiling, branched, septate, with swollen cells giving rise to conidiophores, with hyphopodium-like structures at the base, simple, intercalary, brown to dark brown, thick-walled, smooth to finely verruculose. Conidiophores separate, erect, subcylindrical, straight, septate, thick-walled, brown to dark brown, smooth to finely verruculose. Conidiogenous cells terminal or intercalary, mono- or poly-tretic, sympodial, with 1–2 conspicuous loci, thickened, darkened, refractive, with a minute central pore. Conidia remains in long acropetal chains, narrowly ellipsoidal to cylindrical or fusoid, brown, non or 1-septate, thickwalled, finely verruculose, with apical conidium rounded at the apex; additional conidia with 1–2 truncate, conspicuous hila; thickened, darkened, refractive, with a minute central pore. Chlamydospores absent (Crous et al. 2006b, 2017).
Type: Cladoriella Crous.
Notes: Cladoriellaceae was established by Crous et al. (2017) to accommodate a single genus Cladoriella. Sequence data for this family are available in GenBank and it also supports Cladoriellaceae as a family of Cladoriellales in Dothideomycetes.
