Index Fungorum number: IF 25763; Facesoffungi number: FoF 00954, 2 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2022), No molecular data available.
Habitat terrestrial, saprobic. Sexual morph: Ascomata medium-sized, scattered, erumpent to nearly superficial, reflexed pieces of the ruptured host tissue usually persisting around the surface of the ascomata; ascomata broadly conical, with a flattened base not easily removed from the substrate, wall black, papillate. Peridium carbonaceous. Hamathecium of trabeculate pseudoparaphyses. Asci 8-spored, bitunicate, fissitunicate, cylindro-clavate to narrowly fusoid, with a short, narrowed, furcate pedicel. Ascospores elongate-fusoid, hyaline,uniseptate, constricted at the septum. Asexual morph: Unknown (adapted from Zhang et al. 2012).
Type species: Javaria samuelsii Boise
Notes: Javaria is characterised by scattered, erumpent to nearly superficial ascomata, carbonaceous peridium, cylindro-clavate to narrowly fusoid asci and elongate-fusoid, hyaline,uniseptate ascospores. Javaria resembles Astrosphaeriella but can be differentiated based on its hyaline ascospores with sheath, apical ring, and small sized ascomata. Javaria is morphologically and phylogenetically a distinct genus in Astrosphaeriellaceae.
