MycoBank number: MB 4307; Index Fungorum number: IF 4307; Facesoffungi number: FoF 07899; 1 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), molecular data unavailable.

Type species: Polyclypeolina brideliae (Hansf.) Bat.

Notes: The genus was placed in Aulographaceae based on its branched colonies, superficial, irregular, multi-loculate ascomata, with slit-like opening, and 1-septate, hyaline ascospores (Luttrell 1973). However, Boonmee et al. (2017) introduced Polyclypeolinaceae to accommodate this genus based on its thyriothecium and ascospore features.
