Abstract
Enterographa confusa is described as new to science from Cuba. It is characterized by a lichenicolous habit, punctiform ascomata immersed in the host thallus, (6-)8-spored asci and 3-septate ascospores of 17-23 x (2.5-)3 mu m with a distinct gelatinous sheath of 1.5(-2) mu m. The new species was discovered by chance in the thallus of type material of Arthonia ochraceella, which is lectotypified here. A detailed description of this latter is also provided. Enterographa confusa can be easily overlooked because of its tiny pale ascomata similar in colour to those of its host lichen. A key to all lichenicolous Enterographa species is presented.
