MycoBank number: MB 1174; Index Fungorum number: IF 1174; Facesoffungi number: FoF 06358; – 30 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), 1 species with molecular data.

Type species: Coleroa chaetomium (Kunze) Rabenh., Rabenh. Krypt.-Fl., Edn 2 (Leipzig) 1: 198 (1850).

Dothidea chaetomium Kunze, Syst. mycol. (Lundae) 2(2): 563 (1823).

Notes: The scattered, setose ascomata, deliquescing pseudoparaphyses, fusoid to obclavate asci and 1-septate, constricted ascospores are similar characters to other genera of Venturiaceae. However, the 1-septate ascospores with a pale brown to greenish tint, separates this genus (Zhang et al. 2011).
