Type species: Melaspileopsis diplasiospora (Nyl.) Ertz & Diederich, Fungal Diversity 71: 161 (2015).
≡ Opegrapha diplasiospora Nyl., Acta Soc. Sci. fenn.7(2): 476 (1863).
Notes: The genus was established by Ertz and Diederich (2015), with the type species M. diplasiospora (≡ Melaspilea diplasiospora in Index Fungorum 2020). Phylogenetically, it does not belong to Melaspileaceae but is sister to Stictographa within Stictographaceae (Dai et al. 2018). This genus was placed in Melaspileaceae, order Eremithallales (Wijayawardene et al. 2018). However, we agree with Dai et al. (2018) to retain Melaspileopsis within Stictographaceae.
