Abstract [en]

The recently described genus Vahliella (Peltigerales, Ascomycetes) has repeatedly appearedoutside the Pannariaceae in molecular phylogenies. Here we include data from additional species ofthe genus and utilize mtSSU rDNA and RPB1 sequences to confirm its placement as the sister to agroup consisting of Lobariaceae, Massalongiaceae, Nephromataceae and Peltigeraceae, in the Peltigerales.The new family Vahliellaceae Wedin, P. M. Jørg. & S. Ekman is described for the genus, and itsmorphological characteristics are briefly discussed.
