Stictographa Mudd, Man. Brit. Lich.: 226 (1861).
Lichenicolous on host. Sexual morph: Thallus crustaceous uniform, hypothallus brownish black. Apothecia at first closed, becoming linear-oblong, or lirellaeform sessile; margined by an incurved carbonaceous proper exciple; thalamium arising from a carbonaceous simple hypothecium, Asci obovato-clavate, 8-spored. Ascospores irregularly obovate, or oblong bilocular coloured. Asexual morph: Unknown (Adapted from Mudd 1861).
Type species: Stictographa lentiginosa (Lyell ex Leight.) Mudd
Notes: Stictographa was introduced by Mudd (1861) with S. lentiginosa as type species. Stictographa resembles Labrocarpon in having lichenicolous, black, simple to occasionally short, branched, lirelliform ascomata with a slit-like opening but are phylogenetically distant (Ertz and Diederich 2015; Diederich et al. 2017). Sanderson et al. (2009) mentioned that the type of S. lentiginosa has ascomata which has I+ and K/I+ blue, then turning orange hymenium. Stictographa is currently a well-distinct and the type genus of Stictographaceae.
