Type species: Thrauste medinillae (Racib.) Theiss., Verh. zool.-bot. Ges. Wien 66: 338 (1916).

Balladyna medinillae Racib., Bull. int. Acad. Sci. Lett. Cracovie, Cl. sci. math. nat. Sér. B, sci. nat. 3: 373 (1909).

Notes: This genus is similar to Goosia in its dark hyphopodia and ellipsoid immature ascomata growing directly on hyphae (Theissen 1916; Bin 2003). However, Thrauste differs in its 8-spored, pyriform to clavate asci with an ocular chamber, while Goosia has 2-spored, obovoid asci and the ocular chamber is not well-developed. Dai et al. (2014b) examined a collection (F: 111745), labelled T. medinillae, obtained from S. There are marked differences in the shape and size of asci and ascospores between the original description of the species (Saccardo 1913) under the genus. Based on these differences, they proposed a new species for this specimen (Thrauste parvii).
