Type speciesMicularia merremiae Boedijn, Persoonia 2(1): 67 (1961).

Notes – Boedijn (1961) placed this genus in Saccardiaceae. Lumbsch & Huhndorf (2007, 2010) placed Micularia in Elsinoaceae and this placement was followed by Hyde et al. (2013). Even though it is a parasite on leaves, the inclusion of this genus in Elsinoaceae causes confusion, as it has only one ascus in each locule. Therefore, Jayawardena et al. (2014) excluded this genus from Elsinoaceae and Dissanayake et al. (2014) placed it in Myriangiaceae as it is characterized by ascospores with 1-transverse septum.
