Type speciesMendogia bambusina Racib., Parasit. Alg. Pilze Java’s (Jakarta) 3: 31 (1900).

NotesMendogia was introduced by Raciborski (1900) and typified by M. bambusina. von Arx & Müller (1975) treated Mendogia in Schizothyriaceae and this was subsequently followed by Kirk et al. (2008), Lumbsch & Huhndorf (2010), Hyde et al. (2013) and Wijayawardene et al. (2014b). Based on morphology and phylogeny Dai et al. (2017) excluded it from Schizothyriaceae and accepted placement in Myriangiaceae. This genus is characterized by asci separated by paraphysoid-like filaments or pseudoparenchymatous cells.
