Type species: Platypeltella smilacis Petr., Annls mycol.27(1/2): 62 (1929).

Notes: Platypeltella was introduced as a member of Microthyriaceae. Wu et al. (2014) included it in Asterinaceae based on the superficial hyphae with intercalary capitate appressoria. Platypeltella is similar to Asterinella, but differs in having paraphyses and a round ostiole.
