Type speciesDeniquelata barringtoniae Ariyawansa & K.D. Hyde, Phytotaxa 105(1): 15 (2013).

NotesDeniquelata was introduced by Ariyawansa et al. (2013c) to accommodate Deniquelata barringtoniae as the type species. Deniquelata species are characterized by immersed, dark brown to black ascomata, with bitunicate asci and brown, muriform ascospores (Ariyawansa et al. 2014d). Deniquelata is considered a pathogenic genus with fruiting bodies scattered in the necrotic host tissues (Ariyawansa et al. 2013c, 2014d). Only three Deniquelata species (D. barringtoniae, D. quercina and D. vittalii) have been recorded in this genus (Species Fungorum 2020).
