Type speciesOhleriella neomexicana Earle, Bull. New York Bot. Gard. 2(no. 7): 349 (1902).

NotesOhleriella, typified by Ohleriella neomexicana Earle. was introduced by Earle (1902). Ohleriella was included in Fenestellaceae (Barr 1987a, 1990a) but later Barr (2000) excluded Ohleriella from Fenestellaceae and accommodated it in Delitschiaceae due to its habit. Ohleriella has been treated as a synonym in many genera (Ohleria, Sporormiella or Preussia) (Ahmed & Cain 1972, von Arx & Müller 1975, Clements & Shear 1931). This genus differs from other genera in having more than 2-celled ascospores with saprobic on woody material. Morphology and molecular studies are needed to resolve this issue.
