TypeStriatiguttula S.N. Zhang, K.D. Hyde & J.K. Liu.

Notes – Zhang et al. (2019b) established the pleosporalean family Striatiguttulaceae based on morphology, phylogeny and divergence time estimation. The family contains two genera Longicorpus and Striatiguttula, with three species collected from mangrove palms.
