MycoBank number: MB 197; Index Fungorum number: IF 197; Facesoffungi number: FoF 06546; 3 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), molecular data unavailable.

Type speciesEurytheca trinitensis Syd. & P. Syd., Annls mycol. 13(1): 40 (1915).

NotesEurytheca was placed in Saccardiaceae by Höhnel (1917b). However, Wolf & Wolf (1947) mentioned that this genus belongs to “Myriangiaceen”. Lumbsch & Huhndorf (2007) placed this genus in Myriangeaceae and this classification was followed in Hyde et al. (2013) and Dissanayake et al. (2014). This genus has carbonaceous ascostromata and ascospores with 3–6 transverse septa without longitudinal septa (Dissanayake et al. 2014). Fresh collections and phylogenetic analysis are needed to confirm the familial placement of this genus in Dothideomycetes.
