Parasitic or epiphytic on living leaves. Sexual morph: Ascomata superficial, developed on hyphae, globose to subglobose, brown, covered by brown hyphae. Peridium comprises brown cells of textura angularis, lacking pseudoparaphyses. Asci 8-spored, bitunicate, subglobose to clavate, sessile, thick-walled. Ascospores overlapping ovoid to obovoid, apex wider, narrower towards the lower and rounded end, brown, 1-septate. Asexual morph: Hyphomycetous, Septoidium sp., Shivomyces sp. (adapted from Boonmee et al. 2017).


Type species: Alina jasmini Racib.
