Type species: Kiehlia obscura Viégas, Bragantia 4(1–6): 156 (1944).

Notes: Kiehlia obscurawas originally collected on living leaves of bamboo from Brazil. Inácio and Cannon (2008) re-examined two varieties of the second species K. bambusina, and provided illustrations of sexual and asexual morphs. Index Fungorum (2020) listed K. bambusina as Phyllachora bambusina, hence only the type species is accepted in this genus. Kiehlia is characterized by elongate, immersed stromata and conidiomata growing in a same locule, clavate asci and ovoid, hyaline ascospores with one septum (Viégas 1944).
