Type species – Muritestudina chiangraiensis Wanasinghe, E.B.G. Jones & K.D. Hyde, Studies in Fungi 2(1): 227 (2017).
Notes – The monotypic genus Muritestudina was reported as saprobic on dead twigs from a terrestrial habitat. Muritestudina chiangraiensis is distinct from other genera of Testudinaceae in having cylindrical-clavate asci and hyaline, smooth-walled, ellipsoidal, muriform ascospores with large guttules (Wanasinghe et al. 2017c). A comparison of morphological features of Muritestudina with the other seven genera of Testudinaceae was provided by Wanasinghe et al. (2017c).
