Notes – Hennings (1903) erected the monotypic genus Squamotubera which is characterized by erect, cylindrical to clavate, unbranched stromata with fertile upper part and unicellular, ellipsoidal ascospores with one flattened side, sometimes bean-shaped, brown, with narrowly rounded ends and a spiral germ slit. Based on characters, Daranagama et al. (2018) and Wendt et al. (2018) accepted Squamotubera in Xylariaceae.
