Plant saprophytes are common among Dothideomycetes. Aulographum hederae (Aulographaceae, Microthyriales) produces inconspicuous hypostromatic hysterothecia on dead leaves on a variety of hosts, including Hedera, Ilex, Rhododendron, and Olea. The anamorph is unknown. The nutritional strategy of Aulographum hederae remains elusive to date.
