Xenospadicoidales Hern.-Restr., J. Mena & Gené

Xenospadicoidales is shown as a strongly supported monophyletic group and the single family Xenospadicoidaceae was proposed to replace Lentomitellaceae (Hernández-Restrepo et al. 2017, Réblová et al. 2018). The genera Xenospadicoides and Pseudodiplococcium were also synonymized under Spadicoides (Réblová et al. 2018). Luo et al. (2019) introduced another freshwater genus Neospadicoides. All genera formed a well-supported clade in the study of Hyde et al. (2020). The divergence time for Xenospadicoidales is estimated as 106 MYA. Currently there is one family and five genera in this order (Hyde et al. 2020).
