Stigmatodiscaceae Voglmayr & Jaklitsch, in Voglmayr, Gardiennet & Jaklitsch, Fungal Diversity: 10.1007/s13225–016-0356-y, [5] (2016)

The family Stigmatodiscaceae was introduced by Voglmayr et al. (2016) to accommodate Asterodiscus and Stigmatodiscus. Species of this family are characterized by apothecioid ascomata, broadly fusoid to saccate, with thin ecto- and thick endotunica asci, hyaline to brown ascospores and coelomycetous asexual morphs with hyaline, irregularly sinuously curved to falcate conidia (Voglmayr et al. 2016). Asterodiscus (A. tamaricis) was synonymised with Stigmatodiscus and the new combination S. tamaricis was proposed by Voglmayr & Amengual (2018).
