Type species – Diluviicola capensis K.D. Hyde, S.W. Wong & E.B.G. Jones
Notes – Diluviicola was introduced by Hyde et al. (1998b) to accommodate D. capensis from submerged wood in freshwater in Brunei. Diluviicola aquatica was introduced by Zhang et al. (2017a) from submerged bamboo in a small river in Thailand and considered to differ from the type species, D. capensis, in having subglobose or ellipsoidal ascomata with dark brown necks and mostly biseriate ascospores. Sequence data for D. capensis are not available.
