Type species: Dermatodothella multiseptata Viegas, Bragantia 4(1–6): 150 (1944).

Notes: Dermatodothella shares similar characteristics to Dothidella in having multi-loculate, globose to subglobose ascostromata, with widely porate ostioles. Dermatodothella differs from Dothidella in having filiform pseudoparaphyses and multi-septate ascospores, while Dothidella has bi-celled ascospores and lacks pseudoparaphyses (Hyde et al. 2013). Dermatodothella was placed in Polystomellaceae by Ariyawansa et al. (2013b) because of its similarities to other genera in the family.
