Type speciesHalorosellinia oceanica (S. Schatz) Whalley, E.B.G. Jones, K.D. Hyde & Læssøe

Notes Halorosellinia was established to accommodate H. oceanicum, which was earlier accepted as Hypoxylon oceanicum. The sexual morph of the genus is characterized by immersed ascomata in a poorly developed pseudostromata, unitunicate, 8-spored asci with a cylindrical, J+, apical ring and dark brown-opaque, ellipsoidal ascospores with a straight germ slit (Whalley et al. 2010). Based on sexual and asexual morphology coupled with phylogenetic analyses, Daranagama et al. (2018) and Wendt et al. (2018) accepted this genus in Xylariaceae.
