MycoBank number: MB 540500; Index Fungorum number: IF 540500; Facesoffungi number: FoF 07674.

Eremithallales was introduced for a single species Eremithallus costaricensis (Lücking et al. 2008). Previously Eremithallales was reported close to Lichinomycetes. However, both phylogenetic and morpholocal analysis confirmed the placement of this order in Dothideomycetes with strong support and later Melaspileaceae was included (Ertz and Diederich 2015). In Hongsanan et al. (2020), Eremithallales froms a distinct clade within Dothideomycetes. The divergence time for Eremithallales is estimated as 238 MYA (stem age Hongsanan et al. 2020).

Accepted families: Melaspileaceae.
