Abstract english

Brownlielloideae, a new subfamily in the Teloschistaceae, is proposed based on phylogenetic

analyses of nuclear ribosomal DNA and 12S SSU mitochondrial DNA sequences. The

data indicates that the new subfamily includes eight genera, i.e. Brownliella, Marchantiana

and six new genera proposed here, Lazarenkoella, Raesaeneniana, Streimanniella, Tarasginia,

Tayloriella and Thelliana. Lecanora kobeana Nyl. is lectotypified and shown to be an older

name for the type species of the genus Brownliella, B. aequata. In addition, a seventh new

genus, Neobrownliella is proposed in the subfamily Teloschistoideae. This new genus and

the new species, Thelliana pseudokiamae are described. 13 new combinations are proposed:

Brownliella kobeana, Fulgogasparrea appressa, Lazarenkoella zoroasteriorum, Neobrownliella

brownlieae, N. montisfracti, Raesaeneniana maulensis, Streimanniella burneyensis, S. kalbiorum,

S. michelagoensis, S. seppeltii, Tarasginia tomareeana, T. whinrayi and Tayloriella erythrosticta.
