Type speciesRhytidiella moriformis Zalasky, Can. J. Bot. 46(11): 1383 (1968).

NotesRhytidiella was introduced by (Zalasky 1968) based on R. moriformis, which causes perennial rough-bark of Populus balsamifera (Zhang et al. 2012b). Barr (1987b) temporarily assigned Rhytidiella to Cucurbitariaceae. In the revision of Cucurbitariaceae by Doilom et al. (2013), the authors accepted Rhytidiella as a member in the family. Wijayawardene et al. (2018) likewise kept Rhytidiella as a member of Cucurbitariaceae. However, there are no DNA data available for this genus.
