Type species: Thyriopsis halepensis (Cooke) Theiss. & Syd., Annls mycol. 13(3/4): 369 (1915).
≡ Dothidea halepensis Cooke, Grevillea 7(no. 41): 35 (1878).
Notes: Lumbsch and Huhndorf (2010) placed Thyriopsis in Asterinaceae. However, the thyriothecia of Thyriopsis differs from Asterinaceae in having elongate thyriothecia, globose asci, hyaline ascospores without surface mycelia bearing appressoria. While Asterinaceae has circular thyriothecia, surface mycelia with appressoria and brown ascospores at maturity (Hongsanan et al. 2014b). Therefore, Thyriopsis is replaced in Aulugraphaceae (Hongsanan et al. 2014b). However, Thyriopsis is somewhat different from other genera in this family as its thyrothecia lack a fibrous dark brown margin and has dark brown elongate peridium cells. Molecular data of fresh collection is needed to confirm its placement in this family.
