MycoBank number: MB 5704; Index Fungorum number: IF 5704; Facesoffungi number: FoF 06562; 33 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), 6 species with molecular data.

Type species: Valsaria insitiva (Tode) Ces. & De Not.

Sphaeria insitiva Tode, Fung. mecklenb. sel. (Lüneburg) 2: 36 (1791).

Notes: Valsaria contains plant pathogens and saprobes on various hosts (Phillips 2000; Jaklitsch et al. 2015; Žežlina et al. 2016). Morphological characteristic of Valsaria are ovelapping and hence DNA sequence analyses are needed to classify and delineate them. There are six epithets accommodated in Valsaria based on molecular data coupled with morphological characteristics (Jaklitsch et al. 2015; Wijayawardene et al. 2017a; Index Fungorum 2020).
