Abstract The new lichenicolous Llimoniella phaeophysciae, known from Italy, Spain and the USA (Arizona) on Phaeophyscia, resembles Geltingia associata in the subcylindrical asci with uniseriate, shortly ellipsoid ascospores, but is distinguished by several important characters. Gelatinopsis acarosporicola, G. heppiae, Geltingia groenlandiae and Psorotichia terricola (syn. nov. Gelatinopsis leptogii) are considered to be congeneric with L. phaeophysciae, although some of them have elongate… 

Contributions to the knowledge of lichenicolous fungi growing on baeomycetoid lichens and Icmadophila, with a key to the species

Five species of lichenicolous fungi are described as new to science and an undescribed species of Arthonia (on Pseudobaeomyces) is briefly characterized.

Studies on lichenicolous fungi in the Uppsala (UPS) collection curated by the late Rolf Santesson

A new genus and species, Stromatoneolamya ugandensis, is described for a lichenicolous ascomycete growing on Canoparmelia nairobiensis that mainly differs from Neolamy peltigerae in its well-developed clypeus, completely immersed ascomata clustered in stromatic warts on the host thallus, and the absence of external periphyses.

Multiple origin of the lichenicolous life habit in Helotiales, based on nuclear ribosomal sequences

The results suggest that the lichen-inhabiting life-style in Helotiales was subjected to gains or losses at least three times and its deep relationships to other groups remain unresolved based on rDNA sequences.

Two Superficially Similar Lichen Crusts, Gregorella humida and Moelleropsis nebulosa, and a Description of the New Lichenicolous Fungus Llimoniella gregorellae
