Type species: Dothidasteroma pterygotae (Berk. & Broome) Höhn., Sber. Akad. Wiss. Wien, Math.-naturw. Kl., Abt. 1 118: 1510 (1909).

Rhytisma pterygotae Berk. & Broome, J. Linn. Soc., Bot. 14(no. 74): 131 (1873) [1875].

Notes: Dothidasteroma was erected by von Höhnel (1909a) with D. pterygotae as type species. This genus is characterized by fruiting bodies forming a 1-cell layer, superficial, flat ascostromata with irregular locules. Inácio and Cannon (2008) accepted three species in Dothidasteroma. Inácio et al. (2011) introduced a new species. Thus, four species are accepted in Dothidasteroma.
