Didymosphaeriaceae

provided by wikipedia EN

The Didymosphaeriaceae are a family of fungi in the order Pleosporales. The family was erected by Anders Munk in 1953.

Taxa have a cosmopolitan distribution, and are saprobic in both woody and herbaceous plants. Some species are parasitic on other fungi.[2] The validity of the family as a distinct taxonomic unit has been questioned in a recent (2014) publication that suggests that the genera Appendispora, Phaeodothis, Roussoella, and Verruculina should be moved into other families.[3]

The type genus is Didymosphaeria, first described by Karl Wilhelm Gottlieb Leopold Fuckel in 1870.
