Mycobank number: MB 5500; Index Fungorum number: IF 5500; Facesoffungi number: FoF 07911; 1 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), molecular data unavailable.
Type species: Toroa dimerosporioides (Speg.) Syd.
Notes: Toroa was established to accommodate the type species T. dimerosporioides which is the current name of Asteridium dimerosporioides, Zukalia dimerosporioides, Gibberella dimerosporoides, Perisporium bromeliae and Chaetosphaeria bromeliae (Spegazzini 1888; Saccardo 1891; von Höhnel 1907; Stevens 1917; González-Fragoso and Ciferri 1925; Toro 1926; Boonmee et al. 2017). Barr (1997) transferred Toroa to Pseudoperisporiaceae, however, Toroa can be distinguished from Pseudoperisporiaceae and other families in Dothideomycetes in having 4-spored asci, and 2–3-septate, pale brown to orange brown ascospores which are light at both ends (Boonmee et al. 2017).
