Type species –
Neotrotteria pulchella Sacc.
Notes –
Neotrotteria has multi-spored asci with ellipsoid ascospores (Saccardo 1918) and was treated as synonym of Acanthonitschkea (Nannfeldt 1975, Nannfeldt & Santesson 1975). Vasilyeva et al. (2010) accepted the genus as synonym of Fracchiaea based on similar morphs such as polysporous asci and hyaline ascospores. Maharachchikumbura et al. (2016b) considered Neotrotteria as an independent genus in Nitschkiaceae based on a Quellkörper in the peridium and its difference from Fracchiaea.
