MycoBank number: MB 27738; Index Fungorum number: IF 27738; Facesoffungi number: FoF 03014; 2 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), 1 species with sequence data.

Type speciesWhalleya microplaca (Berk. & M.A. Curtis) J.D. Rogers, Y.M. Ju & F. San Martín

NotesWhalleya species have conspicuous, bipartite, stromata and asci with a J+, apical ring, and dark, ellipsoidal ascospores and has scolecosporous conidia, similar to lopadostomaceous species (Rogers et al. 1997). Based on both xylariaceous and lopadostomaceous morphological affinities, Maharachchikumbura et al. (2016b) placed the genus in Xylariales incertae sedis. However, based on recent phylogenetic studies, the genus is accommodated in Lopadostomataceae (Daranagama et al. 2018, Wendt et al. (2018).
