Type species – Grandigallia dictyospora M.E. Barr, Hanlin, Cedeño, Parra & R. Hern., Mycotaxon 29: 196 (1987).
Notes – Grandigallia is similar to Shiraia in conspicuous stromatic tissue, papillate ostiole and muriform ascospores (Ariyawansa et al. 2013b). However, the genus differs in having black ascostromata and a Polylepis (Rosaceae) host (Hyde et al. 2013). Thus, the genus was placed in Shiraiaceae temporarily. Fresh samples of the genus are needed to and sequenced to confirm the position of Grandigallia in Pleosporales.
