IMycoBank number: MB 3134; ndex Fungorum number: IF 3134; Facesoffungi number: FoF 07872; 3 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), molecular data unavailable.

Type species: Mesniera rottlerae (Racib.) Sacc. & P. Syd. [as ‘rotlerae’], Syll. fung. (Abellini) 16: 441 (1902).

Anthostomella rottlerae Racib., Parasit. Alg. Pilze Java’s (Jakarta) 2: 11 (1900).

Notes: Eriksson (1981) examined several collections of Mesniera and all had concentric rings of ascomata in necrotic patches, wide pores usually containing mature asci with ascospores, and mature ascomata present on both of the upper and lower side of the leaves. Unfortunately, the type species of Mesniera rottlerae (≡ Anthostomella rottlerae) may be lost (Hyde et al. 2013) and need recollecting and neotypifying.
