Type species – Marjia tianschanica Wanas., Gafforov & K.D. Hyde, in Wanasinghe et al., Fungal Divers. 89: 85 (2018).
Notes – Wanasinghe et al. (2018c) established Marjia with Marjia tianschanica (generic type) and M. uzbekistanica collected from Uzbekistan, on Cerasus tianschanica and Rosa species. It is characterized by superficial, broadly oblong, dark brown to black ascomata, filamentous, branched, septate, pseudoparaphyses, cylindrical to cylindric-clavate, long pedicellate asci and ellipsoidal to subfusiform, brown, muriform ascospores. Species in Marjia, Gemmamyces, Melanocucurbitaria, Muriformistrickeria, Uzbekistanica, Pseudostrickeria and Praetumpfia have muriform ascospores, but they are phylogenetically distinct (Wanasinghe et al. 2018c).
