Parmulina Theiss. & Syd., Annls mycol. 12(2): 194 (1914).

MycoBank number: MB 3748; Index Fungorum number: IF 3748; Facesoffungi number: FoF 08116; 5 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), molecular data unavailable.

Type species: Parmulina exsculpta (Berk.) Theiss. & Syd. [as ‘exculpta’], Annls mycol. 12(1): 45 (1914).

Dothidea exsculpta Berk., Hooker’s J. Bot. Kew Gard. Misc. 6: 233 (1854).

Notes: Inácio and Cannon (2008) re-examined a specimen from K, and designated it as neotype, as the authors considered the holotype was missing. This genus was reported as pathogenic on living leaves (morphology see Inácio and Cannon 2008; Wijayawardene et al. 2018, 2020). Parmulina is characterized by superficial, circular to irregular, rather flat, black ascostromata (Inácio and Cannon 2008).
