Notes – Zhang et al. (2009a) described S. begonia and S. melicopes from China. Shrungabeeja was referred to as Ascomycota, genera incertae sedis (Hyde et al. 2011, Wijayawardene et al. 2012). Ariyawansa et al. (2015a) provided sequence data for S. longiappendiculata and assigned Shrungabeeja in Tetraplosphaeriaceae. Unlike other genera in Tetraplosphaeriaceae, Shrungabeeja has macronematous, long conidiophores and subglobose or turbinate, aseptate, pedicellate conidia with 3–7 filiform or horn-like appendages (Zhang et al. 2009a, Ariyawansa et al. 2015a). Sexual morph of Shrungabeeja is unknown.
