Dothiorella Sacc., Michelia 2(no. 6): 5 (1880), Index Fungorum number: IF8098

The genus Dothiorella was introduced by Saccardo (1880a) with D. pyrenophora Berk. ex Sacc. as the type species. The sexual morph of Dothiorella species are rarely reported in nature, but asexual species are widely distributed on many host plants (Phillips et al. 2005, 2013; Jami et al. 2012; Dissanayake et al. 2016). More than 375 species names have been recorded in Dothiorella (Index Fungorum 2016), but currently only few species have gene sequence data.
