Acarosporaceae Zahlbr., 1906
The Acarosporaceae are a family of fungi in the order Acarosporales. Members of this family have a widespread distribution, and are lichenized with green algae.
Formerly classified in the fungal order Lecanorales, phylogenetic analyses in 1998 showed that the Acarosporaceae belong outside this order; further analysis supported this conclusion.
