Type species: Ophioparodia pulchra Petr. & Cif., Annls mycol. 30(3/4): 223 (1932).

Notes: The genus was introduced to accommodate a single species Ophioparodia pulchra, with septoidium as its asexual morph. Ophioparodia was placed in Parodiopsidaceae by Sivanesan (1984) based on its septoidium-like conidia. However, Boonmee et al. (2017) re-examinded the type specimens and could not find pseudoparaphyses or the asexual morph. They included Ophioparodia in a new family Nematotheciaceae as it has superficial, globose to subglobose, uniloculate ascomata, cylindrical asci and long, multi-septate ascospores and a hyphomycetous asexual morph (Boonmee et al. 2017).
