Type species – Hysterocarina paulistae H. Zogg, Beitr. Kenntn. Brasil. Hysteriaceen 59: 42 (1949).
Notes – Zogg (1949) introduced this monotypic genus for Hysterocarina paulistae, with pigmented dictyospores from old wood of Eucalyptus sp. in Brazil. An evaginated keel-like fissure in Hysterocarina is interesting, as it seems to belong to an evolutionary trend close to Mytilinidiaceae and Gloniaceae (Boehm et al. 2009a). Molecular data are needed to resolve its taxonomy.
