Rizalia was introduced by Sydow & Sydow (1914). Hyde et al. (2017b) accepted five species in Rizalia, viz. R. byrsonimae, R. confusa, R. fasciculata, and R. glaziovii and R. guianensis. The sixth species was described by Niranjan & Sarma (2018) from India. Rizalia is characterized by globose to pyriform, setose ascomata with long necks, clavate asci and hyaline, fusiform or falcate ascospores, sometimes with apical mucilaginous frills (Hyde et al. 2017b, Niranjan & Sarma 2018). The asexual morph is undetermined.
