Sérus., W. canariensis (Lumbsch & Vězda) Sérus. and W. vasakii (Vězda) Sérus. A key to all foliicolous species of Fellhanera is presented. Bacidia buxi Vězda & Vivant and Bacidia gorgonea. Vězda & Poelt are reduced into synonymy with Fellhaneropsis myrtillicola, Tapellaria similes Kalb with Byssoloma marginatum(Arnold) Sérus., and Bacidia michaeliana Sérus. with .Bacidia lambinonii Sérus.
