Type species: Syrropeltis xylopia Bat., J.L. Bezerra & Matta, in Batista & Bezerra, Portug. acta biol., Sér. B 7(4):377 (1964).
Notes: The monotypic genus was introduced by Batista and Bezerra (1964), and was treated as Dothideomycetes genera incertae sedis by Wijayawardene et al. (2014a, 2018). Doilom et al. (2018) re-examined the holotype of S. xylopia and transferred Syrropeltis to Parmulariaceae based on its morphologic similarity to this family. Syrropeltis is characterized by large and black ascostromata on host substrate and 1-septate ascospores that are ovoid with upper cell broader and longer, slightly constricted and pale brown to brown at the septum (Doilom et al. 2018).
