Myriangium Mont. & Berk., in Berkeley, London J. Bot. 4: 72 (1845).

Dothideomycetes, Dothideomycetidae, Myriangiales, Myriangiaceae

Index Fungorum number: IF 3361; Facesoffungi number: FoF 06553; 38 morphological species (Species Fungorum 2020), 4 species with molecular data.

Type species – Myriangium duriaei Mont. & Berk.

Notes – Wolf & Wolf (1947) considered that M. curtisii, M. duriaei, M. montagnei and M. thwaitesii are parasitic on scale insects. During the study of morphology and cytology of M. duriaei and M. curtsii, Miller (1938) found that both of these species occur as parasites on scale insects attacking Nyssa sylvatica and Carya illinoensis (Adopted from Hongsanan et al. 2020).
