Notes – Species of Discosia are mostly saprobes and have been recorded worldwide from terrestrial habitats on a various range of host plants (Farr & Rossman 2019). Based on phylogenetic evidence, Liu et al. (2019a) synonymised Adiscio under Discosia, the former which was introduced by Tanaka et al. (2011) to accommodate the sexual morph species of this genus. An epitype for the type species was designated by Liu et al. (2019a) as the type specimen was destroyed.
