Type species: Rhagadolobiopsis thelypteridis Guatim. & R.W. Barreto, Mycologia 106(2): 277 (2014).

Notes: Rhagadolobiopsis was erected by Guatimosim et al. (2014), with a single species, R. thelypteridis. This species is reported as a pathogen on living leaves of Thelypteris serrata from Brazil (morphology and key of genera of Parmulariaceae on fern see Guatimosim et al. 2014; Wijayawardene et al. 2018, 2020). Rhagadolobiopsis is characterized by numerous, scattered, black, stromata forming superficial, ellipsoid tar spot-like colonies on the abaxial surfaces of leaves, multiloculate ascomata, opening by radiating fissures, cylindrical-clavate to clavate asci and fusiform, aseptate, hyaline ascospores (Guatimosim et al. 2014).
