Notes – This genus was established by van der Aa (1971). Initially, this genus was assigned to Venturiaceae and then it was assigned to several different families such as Pseudosphaeriaceae by Barr (1982) and then in Pleosporaceae by Eriksson & Hawksworth (1986), (Kodsueb et al. 2006). Aveskamp et al. (2010) added this genus to Didymellaceae. There are only two species associated with this genus and those are the only records in Index Fungorum and Mycobank.
