Parmulariella Henn., Hedwigia 43(4): 266 (1904).

 Index Fungorum number: IF 3745; Facesoffungi number: FoF 12351, 1 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2022), no molecular data available.

Saprobic on host. Sexual morph: Superficial stroma truncate-scutellate. Perithecia immersed in stroma, radiate, a longitudinal dehiscent fissure. Asci ovoid or clavate, 8-spored. Ascospores oblong, clavate, uniseptate, hyaline. Asexual morph: Unknown (adapted from Hennings 1904).

 Type species: Parmulariella vernoniae Henn.

Notes: Parmulariella is characterised by truncate-scutellate superficial stromata, immersed perithecia with a longitudinal dehiscent fissure, ovoid or clavate, 8-spored asci and oblong, clavate,uniseptate, hyaline ascospores. Parmulariella morphologically resembles Parmularia but differs in having hyaline, 3-septate ascospores. Lumbsch and Huhndorf (2010), Kirk et al. (2013) and Wijayawardene et al. (2017, 2020) listed Parmulariella in Dothideomycetes genera incertae sedis. Isotypes of P. vernoniae are in K and NY herbarium. Fresh collections with DNA sequence data are needed to confirm the systematic position of Parmulariella.
