Echidnodes Theiss. & Syd., Annls mycol. 15(6): 422 (1918).

MycoBank number: MB 1732; Index Fungorum number: IF 1732; Facesoffungi number: FoF 07949; – 29 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), molecular data unavailable.

Type species: Echidnodes liturae (Cooke) Theiss. & Syd. [as ‘litsurae’], Annls mycol. 15(6): 422 (1918).

Aulographum liturae Cooke [as ‘Ailographium’], Grevillea 12(no. 61): 38 (1883).

Notes: Hongsanan et al. (2014b) placed Echidnodes in Aulographaceae based on its superficial hyphae, lack of appressoria and similar morphological characters of its asci and ascospores. However, molecular data is needed to confirm the placement of Echidnodes in Asterinales.
