This order was established by Voglmayr et al. (2016) to accommodate a single family, Stigmatodiscaceae. Two genera (Asterodiscus and Stigmatodiscus) were included in the family based on differences in ascomatal shape and hyaline versus brown ascospores. However, Voglmayr and Amengual (2018) synonymized Asterodiscus under Stigmatodiscus. Our phylogenetic tree (Fig. 68) indicates the same result as in Voglmayr and Amengual (2018) which supports Stigmatodiscales as a distinct order in Dothideomycetes. The divergence time for Stigmatodiscales is estimated as 114 MYA (stem age, Hongsanan et al. 2020).
Accepted families: Stigmatodiscaceae.
