Notes: Over 100 species names are listed under Melanops in Index Fungorum (2020), but, only three species have sequence data (Jiang et al. 2018b). We were unable to obtain fresh collections to represent this genus. Thus, a drawing is provided. A description of the type species can be seen in Phillips and Alves (2009).
