Saprobic on dried leaves. Sexual morph: Ascomata superficial, globose to subglobose, solitary to gregarious, scattered, black, with a subiculum, collapsing when dry, with apical ostiole. Peridium comprising red brown to dark brown cells of textura angularis. Asci 4-spored, bitunicate, oblong-ellipsoid to ovoid, sessile, apically thickened. Ascospores 2-seriate, ellipsoid-fusiform, narrow towards the ends, pale brown to orange brown, light at both ends, smooth-walled. Asexual morph: Undetermined (adapted from Boonmee et al. 2017).
Type: Toroa Syd.
Notes: Boonmee et al. (2017) established this family to accommodate the genus Toroa. Toroaceae differs from other families in the Dothideomycetes in having only four ascospores in the ascus and a combination of other charac- ters (Boonmee et al. 2017). No sequence data is available for this family.
