MycoBank number: MB 817044; Index Fungorum number: IF 817044; Facesoffungi number: FoF 09184; 1 species with sequence data.
Type species – Malaysiasca phaii Crous & M.J. Wingf.
Notes – Malaysiasca was established by Crous et al. (2016b) to accommodate Malaysiasca phaii, based on LSU gene analysis, and is related to members of Glomerellales. Tibpromma et al. (2018) found that Malaysiasca phaii belongs in Glomerellales forming a well-supported clade with other families and introduced a new family as Malaysiascaceae. This family is monotypic comprising only Malaysiasca phaii, which was found on leaves of Phaius reflexipetalus (Crous et al. 2016b) and Freycinetia javanica (Tibpromma et al. 2018).
