Notes: Trichopeltospora was established by Batista et al. (1958). Wu et al. (2011) examined the holotype of Trichopeltospora pipericola and suggested its placement in Asterinaceae based on mycelium with appressoria, thyriothecia opening by rupturing of the central upper wall, subglobose asci, and 1-septate ascospores. Hyde et al. (2013) followedWu et al. (2011) and accepted this genus in Asterinaceae.
