Type species: Vizellopsis grevilleae Bat., J.L. Bezerra &T.T. Barros, Publicações Inst. Micol. Recife 637: 5 (1969).

Notes: Vizellopsis was introduced as a member of Microthyriaceae, and Lumbsch and Huhndorf (2010) included this genus in Dothideomycetes incertae sedis. Dai et al. (2014a) transferred Vizellopsis to Asterinaceae based on the small, black thyriothecia, forming below the dark brown mycelium, comprising radiating cells and a concentrically ridged surface, but strongly thickened and septate hyphae which is different from other genera of Asterinaceae.
