Name

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.[1]

Phylogeny

Formerly classified in the fungal order Lecanorales, phylogenetic analyses in 1998 showed that the Acarosporaceae belong outside this order;[2] further analysis supported this conclusion.[3]
