Arthoniomycetes

provided by wikipedia EN

Arthoniomycetes are a class of ascomycete fungi. It includes two orders: Arthoniales and Lichenostigmatales.[1] Most of the taxa in these orders are tropical and subtropical lichens.

Systematics

Phylogenetic analysis supports the monophyly of this class.[2] Dothideomycetes is a sister group.[3]

Characteristics

Taxa have apothecia, cup- or saucer- shaped ascoma in which the hymenium is exposed at maturity. These apothecia are bitunicate - with clearly differentiated inner and outer walls.
