Strigulales Lücking, M.P. Nelsen & K.D. Hyde.
MycoBank number: MB 805302; Index Fungorum number: IF 805302; Facesoffungi number: FoF 08774.
The order was established by Hyde et al. (2013) to accommodate lichenized fungi in Dothideomycetes. Members of Strigulales differ from most Trypetheliales in having euseptate ascospores with few septa and the lack of secondary chemistry (Hyde et al. 2013). It also differs from Monoblastiales in having unbranched physes and the macroconidia producing gelatinous appendages (Hyde et al. 2013). Two families are accepted in this order. The divergence time for Strigulales is estimated as 201 MYA (stem age, Hongsanan et al. 2020).
Accepted families: Strigulaceae, Tenuitholiascaceae.
