NotesCyclothyriella rubronotata was known as Thyridaria rubronotata. However, phylogenetic analyses indicated that it did not group with T. broussonetiae, the type species of Thyridariai (Hyde et al. 2013, Jaklitsch & Voglmayr 2016). Thus, Jaklitsch & Voglmayr (2016) provided a new generic name Cyclothyriella and introduced Cyclothyriellaceae to accommodate this clade (including Cyclothyriella and Massariosphaeria).
