Trichopeltina Theiss., Beih. bot. Zbl., Abt. 2 32: 3 (1914). Index Fungorum number: IF 5566; Facesoffungi number: FoF 06204; 5 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), molecular data unavailable.
Type species: Trichopeltina labecula (Mont.) Theiss.
Notes: Trichopeltina was established by Theiss (1914a) based on Trichopeltina labecula (≡ Asteroma labecula). Clements and Shear (1931) placed fossil material with a thin thallus and 1-septate ascospores in Trichopeltina. Species of Trichopeltina are characterized by a superficial, irregularly arranged thin thallus, globose to subglobose flattened ostioles, thyriothecia, 8-spored, clavate, fissitunicate asci with hyaline, long clavate, 1–3-septate ascospores (Hongsanan et al. 2014a). However, Dilcher (1965) disagreed that the fossil material cited by Clements and Shear (1931) is Trichopeltina.
